WUIS sponsoring annual "This I Believe" essay contest

Public radio WUIS 91.9/WIPA 89.3 is sponsoring its second annual "This I Believe" essay contest, which asks area high school seniors to submit original essays of their personal beliefs.

WUIS airs the NPR series This I Believe, the descendent of a 1950s-era series with Edward R. Murrow. Creators of the modern series sought to broaden civil discourse by writing a corresponding high school curriculum that would "give students an opportunity to share their own voice with the broader society."

Submissions to this year's contest should be postmarked no later than December 15. Ten winners will be announced in January. Read more>>
