“All I did was stand up for what I believed.”
ETHICS. . . To live an ethical life following requires not only tremendous personal courage and conviction but also an incredibly high ethical standard.
The National Council of Teachers of English is proud to partner with the Muhammad Ali Center and the Norman Mailer Center and Writers Colony to offer an award for college students honoring Muhammad Ali’s legacy of living a life dedicated to high ethical standards.
We are seeking submissions that address relevant ethical topics of this generation. As you identify an ethical issue to address for the purposes of this competition, consider Muhammad Ali’s accomplishments and values and how these values address the topic you have chosen. (Visit www.alicenter.org for more information regarding Ali’s values.)
