About The Contest

In Profiles in Courage, John F. Kennedy recounted the stories of eight U.S. senators who risked their careers to do what was right for the nation. These leaders demonstrated political courage by taking a stand for the public good in spite of pressure by interest groups, their political party, or even their constituents. The Profile in Courage Essay Contest challenges students to write an original and creative essay that demonstrates an understanding of political courage as described by John F. Kennedy in Profiles in Courage.

The maximum word count is 1,000 with a minimum of 700, not including citations and bibliography. Use at least five varied sources such as government documents, letters, newspaper articles, books, and/or personal interviews.

All submissions must adhere to contest requirements.

The contest deadline is January 13, 2023.

Profile In Courage Essay Contest 2023 Contest Topic

"Describe and analyze an act of political courage by a U.S. elected official who served during or after 1917, the year John F. Kennedy was born. Include an analysis of the obstacles, risks, and consequences associated with the act. The essay may concern an issue at the local, state, national, or international level."



Since originality is one of the criteria for judging, we strongly encourage students to profile an official in their town, state or region, or a leader who has addressed an issue of great concern to them. We advise students to avoid selecting a common essay subject. To assist in determining common essay subjects, please see the list below.

List of Most Written About Essay Subjects - We advise that participants avoid writing about officials on this list.

Eligibility and Requirements For Profile In Courage Essay Contest 2023


Eligibility

The contest is open to United States high school students in grades nine through twelve attending public, private, parochial, or home schools; U.S. students under the age of twenty enrolled in a high school correspondence/GED program in any of the fifty states, the District of Columbia, or the U.S. territories; and U.S. citizens attending schools overseas.

 Past winners and finalists are not eligible to participate.

 Employees of John Hancock Financial Services and members of their families are not eligible to participate.

Requirements

The contest deadline is January 13, 2023 at 11:59 PM (EST).

Essays can be no more than 1,000 words but must be a minimum of 700 words. Citations and bibliography are not included in the word count.

Essays must be the original work of the student.

Essays must have a minimum of five sources.

Essay Subjects

Essays must describe an act of political courage by a U.S. elected official who served during or after 1917, the year John F. Kennedy was born. 

The official may have addressed an issue at the local, state, or national level. See Contest Topic and Information and Helpful Tips for Writing Your Essay for more information.

Since originality is one of the criteria for judging, writing about any of these common essay subjects will lower your score.

John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, and Edward M. Kennedy are not eligible subjects for essays.
Essays about past recipients of the Profile in Courage Award will be disqualified unless they describe an act of political courage other than the act for which the award was given. 

Essays about the senators in Profiles in Courage will be disqualified.

Participants are strongly discouraged from profiling the most written about essay subjects. 

Be sure to check this list of common essay subjects before you select your topic.

Source Material

Essays with fewer than five listed sources will be disqualified.

All participants must cite sources they used to research their topic throughout their essay. 

Please use parenthetical citations within the text. 

We can not accept citations in footnote form.

Essays must include a bibliography. Accepted formats include APA, MLA, or Turabian. You must use a minimum of five selected sources. 

Nominating Teachers

All students must list the name of their nominating teacher on the registration form. The role of a nominating teacher is to provide students with support and advice during the writing of their essay. Nominating teachers are also asked to read students' essays to make suggestions for improvement before they are submitted to the essay contest. As part of this review process, the nominating teacher reviews the essay for syntax, grammatical, typographical and spelling errors and ensures the essay meets the contest requirements listed above. The first place winner and his/her nominating teacher, as representatives of their school, will be invited to receive awards at the annual Profile in Courage Award ceremony held each May at the Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston.

Nominating teachers can be former or current teachers, but must still be teaching at the same high school as the essay participant. Usually students ask their English or History/Social Studies teachers. In very few cases, we will make an exception if a student is unable to ask a teacher from their high school to be their nominating teacher. The parent or legal guardian responsible for the instruction of home schooled students can also serve as a nominating teacher

RECOGNITION AND AWARDS

The winner receives a $10,000 cash award. If the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation holds the 2023 Profile in Courage Award event in person, the winner and her/his/their family will be invited to travel to Boston to accept her/his/their award in May 2023. Travel and lodging expenses will be paid for the trip to Boston for the winning student and her/his/their parents.

Second-place winner receives $3,000.

Five finalists receive $1,000 each.

Eight semifinalists receive $100 each.

Ten students receive honorable mentions.

The nominating teacher of the first-place winner is also invited to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library to receive the John F. Kennedy Public Service Grant in the amount of $500 for school projects encouraging student leadership and civic engagement. Travel and lodging expenses will be paid for the trip to Boston.

All participants receive a Certificate of Participation.

Winners and finalists will be notified by April 30. 
All participants will receive a letter announcing the winners and finalists by the end of May.
