Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is pleased to announce its two annual international contests: an essay contest for teachers and students on nationalism, and a photo contest for students on cities/urbanization.
Whether you choose to express yourself in words or in photos, we're looking for thoughtfulness, originality, and vision.
The deadline for both contests is December 31, 2016. Prizes are Amazon Gift Certificates and the winning entries will be posted on Carnegie Council's website.
