For the 2022 President Gerald R. Ford Student Writing Challenge, we invite you to write 500-750 words sharing your thoughts on the topic of "integrity."

Some ideas include: How do YOU define or measure this character trait? Is there someone in your life, or in history, whom you admire for his or her strength of character and integrity? Was there a time your character was tested? Did integrity win?

MI students in grades 9-12 are eligible to win:

First Place: $2,500

Second Place: $1,500

Third Place: $1,000

Plus up to seven honorable mention awards of $500.
