Announcing! Winning Selections for 2014 Gandhi Global Center for Peace Student Essay Contest

GGCP Winning Selection Laurels As we celebrate our First Annual Gandhi Global Center for Peace Student Essay Contest, each day over the next two weeks, we will introduce one of our student essay winners with their winning essay and a profile. In January 2014, Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson Arun Gandhi announced the first annual Gandhi Global Center for Peace essay contest for students to share their vision for the center. In partnership with Gandhi Global Center for Peace and Gandhi’s Be Magazine, the first annual essay contest took place during “A Season for Nonviolence” marking the assassinations of Mahatma Gandhi on January 30 and Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4. During this time, students around the world were invited to write and submit their essays on one of three focus questions under four categories: College/University, High School, Middle School, and Elementary. The 2014 Winning Selections are featured here along with student profiles. Click on each student’s name to read their profile and winning essay. Along with our media partner Gandhi’s Be Magazine, we also feature a special contribution of student artwork from Washington Alternative School in Chattanooga, Tenn. inspired by the first annual Gandhi Global Center for Peace Student Essay Contest.
