The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation is hosting an essay contest for high school juniors and seniors and college students to earn scholarship money! The first-place winner will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship. To enter the contest, please write a 750-1,000-word essay answering the following prompt in Chicago or MLA style: Examine a piece of legislature in your local community, either proposed or in effect, and explain its consequences on the economy, creation, and the people who live in your area. Examine the worldview, assumptions, and solutions employed by the bill’s sponsors. Identify any errors in these three categories and how they affect the legislation.
Your response should be between 750 and 1,00 words with proper citations, including a clear citation of the piece of legislation to which you refer. To submit your essay, complete the form below. Submissions are due by September 30th, 2023. Essays submitted become the property of the Cornwall Alliance, which, if it publishes them or arranges for their publication, shall identify their authors. At the Cornwall Alliance, we believe that human beings were created in the image of God to steward the earth and promote the flourishing of humanity. We believe that the wellbeing of people, especially the poorest of the world, should be the primary concern when we think about how to care for creation.
