The Elie Wiesel Prize in Ethics is an essay contest. Essay topics and the online entry form are available on the Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity website. After registering with the website, applicants may submit their essays online. The completed online entry must be reviewed and verified by the applicant and his/her faculty sponsor (any interested professor at the student's school may act as a faculty sponsor). Essays may be written in the formal or informal voice, but most importantly, an individual voice should be represented within the essay. In 3,000 to 4,000 words, students are encouraged to raise questions, single out issues and identify dilemmas. The essay may be developed from any point of view and may take the form of an analysis that is biographical, historical, literary, philosophical, psychological, sociological or theological. Suggested essay topics are provided. Essays must be the original, unpublished work of the student, and must be received online no later than the deadline date.
