It's that time of year again! The International Bipolar Foundation is conducting their global essay contest for middle school and high school students. This is one of our favorite events of the year.
One way to fight stigma is by learning the facts and sharing them with others. To help middle school and high school students do that, International Bipolar Foundation sponsors an annual contest that encourages students from around the world to write essays that educate others about bipolar disorder. A student chooses a topic from the list of suggestions, researches it, and then writes an essay of 500-800 words. Essays are judged by a panel of mental health authors. The winner earns a cash prize of $500, with smaller cash prizes for second and third places.
