CUNY Ethics and Morality Essay Contest!

The Asian American / Asian Research Institute is currently accepting submissions for the 2014 Dr. K. York & M. Noelle Chynn - CUNY Ethics and Morality Essay Contest.

This contest and annual award is intended to promote and stimulate thinking by college students at CUNY about the topic of ethics, morality, and virtuous behavior in their lives. More than ever, these issues arise not only in the personal relationships of individuals and family and friends, but also in the context of corporate, government, and social responsibility, whether it is about treating others fairly and honestly, or food safety. However, in today's modern society, virtues have slowly begun to lose their importance, or are often forgotten in the daily hustle of people's daily lives.

The CUNY Ethics and Morality Essay Contest is funded by an endowment gift of $100,000 to the City University of New York by Dr. K. York Chynn and his wife Noelle Chynn.

Eligibility:

  • All currently enrolled CUNY undergraduate and graduate students are eligible and encouraged to submit.

How to Apply:

  • Students are asked to select a virtue and to write a 1,000 word essay about how it has affected and been applied in their lives.

Awards:

AAARI will award the top three essays the following prizes at our upcoming 13th Annual Gala in October:

  • Best Essay ($1,000)
  • First Runner-up ($300)
  • Second Runner-up ($200)

For full submission guidelines and to view past winning essays, please visit http://www.aaari.info/ethics.htm. Follow us on Facebook.

Deadline: Tuesday, October 14
