Sertoma Club of Nashville Freedom Essay Contest

DEADLINE:  December 14, 2017

58th Annual Freedom Essay Contest

 

PURPOSE

To promote critical thinking in our youth about the various legal, moral, and philosophical issues that affect the freedoms that are enjoyed in the United States of America.

 

TOPIC FOR 2017-2018

“The First Amendment to the Constitution provides that Congress shall make no law that abridges the freedom of speech.  NFL player Colin Kaepernick has exercised his right of free speech by kneeling during the National Anthem to protest perceived racial injustices in the United States.  The United States also espouses a free market economy, which includes freedom of contract.  Should NFL owners and other employers be permitted to place restrictions in employment contracts that limit an employees’ rights to exercise freedom of speech?”
