The John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Essay Contest for High School Students is officially open! We’re now accepting submissions from high school students for the 2022 contest—and your students can win up to $10,000 for participating!
Sixty-five years ago, John F. Kennedy described the stories of eight U.S. senators who demonstrated great courage under enormous pressure in his Pulitzer Prize-winning book Profiles in Courage. Although the problems facing our leaders today are different, President Kennedy’s message transcends. The Profile in Courage Essay Contest is a great way for students to strengthen their research and writing skills while recognizing courageous leaders who have inspired them.
Describe and analyze an act of political courage by a US elected official who served during or after 1917.
To learn more about political courage, visit Contest Information and FAQs.
All submissions must adhere to contest requirements.
The Profile in Courage Essay Contest opens for submissions on September 1, 2021. The contest deadline is January 14, 2022.
Join our mailing list to get contest tips, updates, and a reminder to submit your essay.
The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum does not sell or share your personal information or email address.
