Topic Decided For the 2009 – 2010 National Peace Essay Contest!

The United States Institute of peace (USIP) is proud to announce the topic for the 2009-10 National Peace Essay Contest: ‘The Effectiveness of Nonviolent Civic Action.’ Students will examine cases where nonviolent methods have been used and discuss under what conditions nonviolent civic actions are most likely to achieve justice, end conflict, or lead to positive political and social change.

First-place state winners of the contest receive scholarships and are invited to Washington for a five-day awards program.
