  • Each year, the Religious Liberty Essay Scholarship Contest engages high school students in church-state issues by directing them to express a point of view on a religious liberty topic. Essays are judged on the depth of their content, the mastery of the topic, and the skill with which they are written. Students should develop a point of view on the issue and demonstrate critical thinking, using appropriate examples, reasons and other evidence to support their position. The annual contest is sponsored by the Religious Liberty Council of the Baptist Joint Committee. The grand prize is $2,000 and a trip for two (2) to Washington, D.C. Second prize is $1,000, and third prize is $250.

    The contest is open to all high school students who will be graduating in the next two years. There are no requirements regarding GPA, faith, after-school activities or clubs.

    Essays must be 800-1,200 words in 12-point type, double-spaced and single-sided. To ensure fairness, your name or any other identifying information should not appear on any page of the essay. Sources must be cited and credited in a bibliography. For other specific essay requirements as well as the prompt, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
