2018 Profile in Courage Essay Contest - January 4, 2018 (First Prize = $10,000)

It takes courage to stand up for your beliefs. Some elected officials risk their careers to do what they believe is right for their community and country.


In Profiles in Courage, John. F. Kennery recounted the stories of eight U.S. Senators who put the nation's interest above their own. They were guided by integrity and conscience, not party pressure or fear of losing the next election.


Here's your chance to write the next profile in courage.
