Human Rights Contest
The Kemper Human Rights Education Foundation was started in remembrance of Richard Kemper, a lieutenant who was "killed defending his country and its ideals in World War II." It was founded by two people who I know personally to be great scholars and humanitarians. Its purpose is to "inspire students to search for ways to create a just and peaceful world."
Therefore, for the past thirteen years the foundation has sponsored an essay writing contest for students. This year your students can participate in a pre-contest contest. KHREF will award $100 to the student who submits the question that is chosen for the 2014 essay contest by November 30, 2013. Just visit their site to find the entry form. There are winning questions and essays from past contests to give your students as examples/exemplars.
This is definitely worth looking at more closely.
