BBB Ethical Torch Essay Scholarship Contest

DEADLINE IS SEPTEMBER 30, 2020

At the Better Business Bureau (BBB), we believe it is never too early to introduce and emphasize the importance of ethics. At the high school level, students begin to face ethical decisions that may impact the rest of their lives. They serve as role models whose moral compass not only guides their actions, but also influences those around them. The BBB seeks to honor ethical students for doing the right thing with the BBB Ethical Torch Essay Scholarship, available in Greater Arizona and Southern California. 

Essay Prompt: Write about an ethical dilemma that you had to face in your life and how you handled it. (400 or less words).
