Congratulations to Valenni Passaro, Adina Rahman, and Erica Marciante whose essays took 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place in the National Kids Philosophy Slam Essay Competition. Plato would be extremely proud! The Kids Philosophy Slam was created by John Davis to provide a powerful opportunity to help students grapple with life's big issues. Each year, a different question is chosen that requires students to think about a major philosophical idea that is relevant in their lives and society. This year's essay topic was "truth or deceit, which has a greater impact on society"? The winning essays can be found at the link below. Any Bethpage High School student who is interested in entering the 2019 Kids Philosophy Slam Essay Competition should see Ms. Way for details.
