The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) is holding its first high school essay writing contest. Beginning November 1st, high school students are invited to submit an essay up to 500 words about the Second Amendment.
Inspired by the recent surge in firearm ownership throughout NJ the New Jersey Second Amendment Society created this contest to help students explore their belief and understandings about the second amendment to the US Constitution.
The theme for the contest is “what is the meaning of the Second Amendment and how does it relate to the modern world.” Students are encouraged to use the theme as a guideline and to be creative with the interpretation of the Second Amendment as they describe its relevance to their lives.
In order to be consider, all essays must adhere to the following format:
- Double spaced
- 1 inch margins
- Include an essay title
- Have 12 point font
- Use Microsoft Word or a compatible format
The contest is open to all high school students in New Jersey, and all essays must be 500 words or less. Only one essay may be submitted per student. The essay must be related to the Second Amendment and the individual right of the people to keep and bear arms.
Submissions must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 30, 2013, 5:00pm EST. The winners will be announced on June 1, 2013.
Winner of the contest will get the opportunity to participate in a Gun Test Drive with Gun for Hire Academy. They can shoot total 144 rounds through one mystery gun, six long-guns and ten handguns. (parental permission may be required)
