Time is running out! Be sure to enter FIRE’s High School Essay Contest by January 1 to win a $10,000 college scholarship!
To enter, high school juniors and seniors should watch two FIRE videos—Silencing U: Five Outrageous Cases of Campus Censorship and What Every Student Should Know Before Starting College—and write an essay answering the question: “Why is free speech important at our nation’s colleges and universities?”
