High school seniors and undergraduate students who live, work or attend school in Seattle are invited to write an essay about an individual or group of individuals from Washington State who have demonstrated civic courage on an issue of importance to the community at great personal, political or professional risk.

The Stim Bullitt Civic Courage Scholarship essay contest is awarding $5000 to the best essay addressing civic courage. You may figure that a prize of that magnitude will demand the best writing from Seattle students, and you’re right, but help is on the way. For starters, who will you write about? You’ll need to find someone from Washington State, but locating a list of courageous Washingtonians may not be easy. That’s why research assistance is available from our librarians at all of our locations and we are offering one more special workshop to support students in their research:

6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10 at the Central Library, Level 10, Hugh and Jane Ferguson Room.

The contest is open from January 2 to February 28, 2014.
