The Kids Philosophy Slam folks released the topic for the 2018 contest, which has a deadline of March 9, 2018. The question is, “Truth or Deceit: Which has a Greater Impact on Society?” Definitely relevant!
Students from K-12 can participate in the contest, and younger students can submit their entries in a variety of forms (essay, art-work, etc…). If you have participated in the past, please note that there are some new guidelines for entries.
Although individual students can receive rewards, the contest is also looking for “The Most Philosophical School in America,” which will receive a $200 cash prize. See the above link for more information.
