Junior Achievement and Deloitte today announced the launch of their fifth annual "Excellence through Ethics" essay contest, in which U.S. high school seniors are asked to apply their knowledge of ethical decision-making and share their views on the importance of ethics in business. To enter, high school seniors must compose an original essay of 500 words or less in response to an ethical dilemma posted on Junior Achievement's Web site, located at www.ja.org. Entries must be submitted online and will be accepted starting now, until January 2, 2009. The winning essay will be selected by members of the Junior Achievement Blue Ribbon Panel on Ethics, comprised of corporate ethics officers and noted academicians. The essays will be judged on criteria that include how well the student analyzes the situation, their presentation of a well-supported argument in response to the dilemma and how thoughtfully they articulate the importance of ethics in business.
