By December 31, 2013

The deadline to enter FIRE’s High School Essay Contest is tomorrow! You could win a $10,000 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?”

To view the full contest rules and entry form, visit thefire.org/contest. Please email essaycontest@thefire.org with any questions.

If you aren’t a high school junior or senior, please help FIRE spread the word by telling your friends, family, and teachers!
