Humanist Canada together with the Association humaniste du Québec will be hosting an essay through the Humanist Canada Essay Contest.
The essay contest will provide an opportunity for students at the high school and CEGEP level express thoughts on humanism in Canadian society.
It is intended for the advancement of humanist values in both the Anglophone and Francophone spheres of the nation.
Within this advancement is critical analysis and thought about the value and need of humanism in Canada now, there are no predefined topics, though.
In addition to the opportunity to freely express ones thoughts as a young person on humanism in Canada, there will be a total of $8,000 in prize money.
The first place prize in each language will be $1,000. Thus, this does qualify as a proper competition, where the deadline is May 15th, 2019.
“We are proud to give Canadian students a forum to express humanist themes given the on-going attack on science and reason we have observed in society,” Dr. Lloyd Robertson, Vice-President of Humanist Canada, stated, “Humanist Canada and Association humaniste du Québec are proud to be the hosts of the HCEC. We look forward to receiving many submissions from inspired and interested high school students.”
