The Academy for International Conflict Management and Peacebuilding runs the National Peace Essay Contest based on the belief that questions about peace, justice, freedom, and security are vital to civic education. First-place state winners receive scholarships and are invited to Washington for a five-day awards program.
The Institute pays for expenses related to the program, including travel, lodging, meals and entertainment. The five-day program promotes an understanding of the nature and process of international peacemaking by focusing on a region and/or theme related to the current essay contest.
