George R. Hensel Ethics Essay Contest


About the Contest

Rotary International District 5300 George R. Hensel Ethics Essay Contest is designed to challenge high school students to analyze ethical issues and concerns confronting them in today’s complex world.  Because our fellow Rotarian, businessman, and philanthropist, George R. Hensel, Ph.D., privately funded this contest before his death in 2012, there are no entry fees to pay.  Students submit essays to their local Rotary Clubs and may, at the club’s discretion, present their essays at a club meeting.  Winners at the club level advance to the District Level and four winners at that level are awarded monetary prizes.  The top three runners up are awarded cash prizes of $500 and the winner at the District Level receives $3,000.  The overall winning essay is presented at the District Conference.
