2018 First Amendment Essay Contest
Attention Oklahoma High School Educators!
Invite your students to enter the 2018 Zach Taylor First Amendment Essay Contest to win prizes! Three students will win cash prizes, courtesy of Freedom of Information Oklahoma. First prize is $300, second place will receive $200, and third place will win $100. Seven students will receive honorable mentions and gift cards! Essay contest deadline is October 24.
Students pick one of the freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to write an essay about that freedom’s importance to our daily lives. Rather than write a report, students are encouraged to do factual research and write creatively and personally.
Plus! Save the Date: The annual First Amendment Congress will be held Wednesday, November 14th, at the University of Oklahoma’s Constitution Hall in Edmond. Our theme this year is "It's Up to You." Sessions will focus on student protests today and yesterday. Dr. Joey Senat will be on hand to moderate the day’s events, as well as to present his signature session on The First Amendment Rights of High School Students.
Watch for more information on the Congress!
