The National WWII Museum High School Essay Contest- American entertainer Bob Hope began as an immigrant who came to the United States with his family as a young boy. By the start of World War II, Hope was just emerging as one of America’s most popular radio and film stars. When America went to war in 1941, Hope recognized the need for contributions and responded by entertaining troops, raising funds, and boosting morale. Hope later took his wartime programs on the road to military camps and bases across the country, and then around the world to wherever Americans were serving.  Speaking of his efforts, Hope humbly said “I was offering time and laughs — the men and women fighting the war were offering up their lives. They taught me what sacrifice was all about.”

So Ready for Laughter: The Legacy of Bob Hope, tells the story of Hope’s unique place in the history of World War II and beyond, and the contributions he made that still reverberate more than 70 years later.  For its 2018 student essay contest, The National WWII Museum is asking middle school (grades 5 – 8) and high school students (grades 9 – 12) to consider Hope’s quote and to explain what you feel the role of art and artists should be during times of war and conflict.  For more information, click hereDeadline: December 28, 2018

Minimum Wage and Overtime Reform Scholarship- The Employment Law Group is thrilled to announce the establishment of their Minimum Wage and Overtime Reform Scholarship, which will be awarded to a student who is interested in reforming the minimum wage and overtime laws to stop “wage theft.”

Many states around the US, including Tennessee, currently have no mandatory minimum wage and overtime laws. However, employers must adhere to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) which states employees are entitled to receive 1 ½ times their hourly rate when they work more than 40 hours a week. The act also says employees are entitled to be paid at least $7.25 per hour for all hours worked. In order to tackle these concerns, The Employment Law Group has established a $1,000 scholarship to address “wage theft.”

Applicants should author an essay which discusses whether or not minimum wage and overtime legislation should be changed, including what fines or punishments (if any) should be levied against employers who commit wage theft, and if changes should be made; what would be the effect of these changes?

Scholarship Eligibility

To be eligible for the Minimum Wage and Overtime Reform Scholarship, applicants must be currently enrolled in or planning to attend an accredited community college, undergraduate, or graduate program in the United States. They also must show excellent academic standing with at least a 3.0 GPA. The scholarship recipient must articulate their position on wage reform and employment legislation. There is no right or wrong answer we are seeking, we are looking for an essay which is clear and presents passionate but reasonable solutions in addressing these problems.

American Foreign Service Association (AFSA) National High School Essay Contest- The United States has many tools to advance and defend its foreign policy and national security interests around the world—from diplomatic approaches pursued by members of the Foreign Service, to the range of options available to the U.S. military. In countries affected by or vulnerable to violent conflict, peacebuilding tools are important additions to the national security toolkit.

In such complex environments, cooperation across agencies and approaches is challenging, but it can also blend knowledge and skills in ways that strengthen the overall effort to establish a lasting peace. On the other hand, lack of coordination can lead to duplication of effort, inefficient use of limited resources and unintended consequences.

In a 1,000-1,250-word essay, identify two cases—one you deem successful and one you deem unsuccessful—where the U.S. pursued an integrated approach to build peace in a conflict-affected country. Analyze and compare these two cases, addressing the following questions:

  • What relative strengths did members of the Foreign Service and military actors bring to the table? What peacebuilding tools were employed? Ultimately, what worked or did not work in each case?
  • How was each situation relevant to U.S. national security interests?
  • What lessons may be drawn from these experiences for the pursuit of U.S. foreign policy more broadly?
