Do you have a vision for how to change the world? Are you engaged in an exciting, youth-led social justice campaign? Do you think regularly about the intersection of politics and spirituality? Are you an aspiring writer?
TIKKUN is looking for smart, crisp writing that combines storytelling with analytical sophistication. They want to hear you talk in particularities, not generalities. Tell a story about yourself and your community and then use that story to explore broader questions about politics or ethics or social change. If you can tie your topic in to a current issue or timely policy discussion, that’s even better. Don’t know where to start? Feel free to pick one of the prompts HERE to use as a jumping-off point.
This contest is open to students under age 25, and the deadline for submission is June 15, 2009.
