Fountainhead High School Essay Contest


Scholarship Value: $10,000
Awards Available: 59

Essays will be judged on whether the student is able to argue for and justify his or her view-not on whether the Institute agrees with the view the student expresses. Judges will look for writing that is clear, articulate and logically organized. Winning essays must demonstrate an outstanding grasp of the philosophic meaning of The Fountainhead.

REQUIREMENTS

A) No application is required. Contest is open to students worldwide, except where void or prohibited by law. Essays must be written in English only.

B) Entrant must be in the 11th or 12th grade for any part of the school year in which the contest is held. ARI reserves the right to make exceptions to this rule, on a case-by-case basis, for international students or for students with nonstandard school years.

C) To avoid disqualification, mailed-in essays must include a stapled cover sheet with the following information:

1. your name and address;

2. your email address (if available);

3. the name and address of your school;

4. topic selected (#1, 2 or 3 from the "Topics" tab);

5. your current grade level; and

6. (optional) the name of the teacher who assigned the essay if you are completing it for classroom credit.

D) Essay must be no fewer than 800 and no more than 1,600 words in length, double-spaced. Spelling errors and/or written corrections (by anyone) found on the essay will count against the final grade and should be omitted before submission.

E) One entry per student per contest.

F) Essay must be submitted online or postmarked by April 25, 2019, no later than 11:59 p.m., Pacific Standard Time.
