Bethpage Takes 4th Place in National Philosophy Essay Competition

Congratulations to Sami Ahmed whose essay took 4th Place in the National Kids Philosophy Slam essay competition. Plato would be very 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 in society. This year's essay topic was "love or hate, which has a greater impact on society"? The winning essays, including Sami's submission can be found on the National Kids Philosophy Slam website.
