MN ALLIANCE OF PEACEMAKERS ANNOUNCES PEACE ESSAY CONTEST
Minneapolis, Mn, (September 1, 2016) - The Minnesota Alliance of Peacemakers (MAP) announces the second annual LESLIE REINDL PEACE ESSAY CONTEST for Minnesota high school juniors and seniors. Completed essays are due February 28, 2017, and the top 3 winners will be showcased and awarded scholarship prizes of $1,000, $750, and $500 at World Storytelling Day, March 21, 2017 at Landmark Center in St. Paul.
Students will have opportunity to think and write on one of 3 questions, one on unpacking cultural biases and creating a more inclusive society. Another is focused on developing one's own peacemaking activity, and a third on the Peace Literacy work of Captain Paul K. Chappell of Nuclear Age Peace Foundation. Full topics, guidelines, and suggested resources, as well as classroom speakers, are available now by contacting Larry Johnson at 612-747-3904 or email@example.com.
Last year's first place winner, Northfield's Lauren Wieber, is using her award to fund a 5 month service project in the Dominican Republic. Her essay, "Harmony", said, "People everywhere have differing values and ideas, yet we can still co-exist. It is how we respond to differing opinions that sparks conflict . . . Harmony is cooperation, sympathy, and fellowship. It's a way to approach and respond to conflict . . . something which can also accentuate and remind us of the beauty of all the different people of the world."
Leslie Reindl, for whom the contest was named, was a prominent Minnesota Peace Activist who died in 2014. The Peace Essay contest is the outgrowth of efforts by her husband/fellow activist, Wilhelm Reindl, to fulfil Leslie's legacy to advance the vision of a "true, universal, Peaceable Kingdom". Minnesota Alliance of Peacemakers, www.mapm.org, is a coalition of over 70 Minnesota peace and justice organizations, pooling resources, ideas, and efforts to work for a more just, peaceful, sustainable community and world.
