Live Deliberately Essay Contest

banner_educ-1

Introducing…the 2018-2019 Essay Contest Prompt!  PLEASE NOTE that this year’s deadline is February 15!

“What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on? If you can not tolerate the planet it is on? Grade the ground first. If a man believes and expects great things of himself, it makes no odds where you put him, or what you show him…he will be surrounded by grandeur.”*

H.D. Thoreau, Correspondence to H.G.O. Blake, 20 May 1860

With the quotation above as inspiration, respond to the following in 750 words or fewer

What is a change you are passionate about seeing in the world? How can you “grade the ground first” to cultivate that change within yourself? How do the changes we make within ourselves make the world a better place?

*It was common practice in the 19th century to use masculine pronouns when describing the entirety of humankind.  We use Thoreau’s quotation as it was written with the understanding that he was referring to all people.  We encourage youth of all gender identities to participate in the Essay Contest.

Essay Contest Information and Timeline

Each year, the Live Deliberately Essay Contest invites youth around the world, ages 14-21, to consider a selected Henry David Thoreau quotation and accompanying prompt. Contestants are asked to write a thoughtful essay that uses personal experience and observation to demonstrate how that year’s quotation and prompt relate to their own lives and to the world around them. Like Thoreau, these young people use the power of their words to convey vivid stories, personal conviction and human compassion.

The contest has three age groups: 14-16, 17-18, and 19-21. One winner will be identified in each age group and will receive a $250 cash prize, plus an autographed special edition of Walden.  Essays may also be selected to receive Honorable Mention in each age group, which will be awarded with an autographed special edition of Walden.

The deadline for essay submission is February 15. Each essay is reviewed by at least two readers and results are announced by the end of April.

Please read the Contest Guidelines for more information about the Contest and some tips to help you write your essay.

30167968_2043676538995554_7023566877296672616_o - christina stump

Meet Christina, the winner of our annual EPIC Materials Scholarship.  Christina won our annual $100 scholarship offered to members of EPIC Homeschool Network. To learn more about membership go to www.epichsn.org.

 

Upon receiving her scholarship Christina expressed her deepest thanks:

Thank you so much for the materials scholarship! We have used the money from the scholarship to add to our ever growing books for homeschooling the 2 kids I have. I added some preschool workbooks and reading books for my 3 yr old and for my 8 yr old I have added Singapore science and also some language arts books as well. We used the leftovers to make a new shelf for our books as our previous shelf was getting a bit tight. I can not say thank you enough for the scholarship as this year was a bit tight for us money wise and we certainly used it! I hope you keep the EPIC scholarships open for those who need them in the future. Thank you again.

$10,000 Scholarships to Clemson University – Deadline December 11

PastedGraphic-2

The Lyceum Scholars Program at Clemson University, is a new and unique $10,000 scholarship for incoming freshmen to study the moral, political, and economic foundations of a free society.  They have found that homeschool students are excellent candidates for the Lyceum Scholars Program and many of their current Scholars come from a homeschool background.

Lyceum Scholars take eight classes together as an intellectual cohort during their undergraduate career. They read the Great Books of Western Civilization and discuss timeless questions such as:

  • What makes a society free? 
  • What makes a society prosperous? 
  • What are the principles of the American Founding?


The Lyceum Scholars Program recreates the substance and value of a traditional liberal arts education, which is sadly missing from many of today’s colleges.

More information about the Program is available on their website and students may apply here.
