The Rotary Club and the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles consortium will hold the 9th annual “Promoting Professional Ethics” competition this year under the patronage of UNESCO.
The competition is open to students from three years post high-school to PhD level. The competition participants—tomorrow’s decision makers—must write a five-page essay (individual or as a group) defending the personal values they will draw upon to shape the world of the future. They should also reflect upon the role of professional ethics and the societal challenges it raises. The essays can be on any topic, as long as it is related to ethics.
Essays for the first-round regional selection are due on February 28, 2013. National winners will collect their awards next spring at UNESCO. Winners will receive between €500 and €2,000. Are you ready to start writing?
