Masonic Fraternity of Oklahoma High School Senior Essay Contest
Students AND high schools can win cash prizes up to $5,000!
Required essay topic: 

The events of the past do not change; however, the way we view them does.  What happens when we erect a monument to a person or event that is meant to memorialize heroic deeds for all of posterity, only to find that future generations do not consider those deeds so heroic anymore?  Or, when a certain portion of the population finds the monument to be offensive or a symbol of subjugation?  Select an American statue that may not be standing the test of time and explain the reasons why.

Any high school senior attending an Oklahoma public school may enter. Essays must be submitted online, using Microsoft Word, no later than October 31. The essay must be 1,000 – 1,250 words and include a Works Cited page listing all referenced materials in a generally accepted format, including any internet resources used. Essays will be judged based on adherence to the prescribed topic, organization of material, interest, originality, spelling, grammar, punctuation, and neatness.
