  • 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 contest is open to all junior and senior high school students. There are no requirements regarding GPA, faith, after-school activities or clubs. Essays must be 800-1,200 words and full essay format details, as well as the prompt and other information can be found at the scholarship provider's website.
