  • Scholarship Description
    For over 200 years, the First Amendment has been the cornerstone of freedom in the United States. Commonly referred to as the “five freedoms,” the First Amendment has helped people in the U.S. exercise their rights to work for a more free and just society and impacts every aspect of our lives. ADL and Greenberg Traurig, LLP, in partnership with NIE Chicago Tribune, announce Our First Amendment Freedoms Art & Essay Contest for grades 6 – 11. Students submit an essay or create a work of art that best addresses the following assignment: "Using a personal example or experience, describe or portray how one or more of the five freedoms in the First Amendment affects your daily life."

    First Place winners in each grade category will receive college scholarships for $5,000. Second Place winners will receive $1,000. As a part of the contest, teachers are invited to use ADL’s completely free curriculum guides on the First Amendment!
