Student Essay Contest, Hosted By Humanist Canada
Deadline: September 30, 2020

The national voices for English and French Humanism in Canada, Humanist Canada and Association humaniste du Québec, respectively, will host another essay contest this year. The theme for the Humanist Canada Essay Contest this year is “Religion and Humanism in Education” in a Canadian context. We welcome all high school students to submit their strongest ideas, thoughts, and arguments to us.
The essay contest provides an opportunity for students to think critically on Humanism in Canadian society. There will be a total of $8,000 in prize money, for students who compete in the contest and win. The first place prize in each language will be $1,000. Deadline is September 14th, 2020 at 11:59pm Eastern Time. There are no predefined topics. However, the bounds of the content should be relevant to the humanist community and its values across Canada.
