“Good Without God” Essay Contest

The United Coalition of Reason is sponsoring an essay contest that could earn you $1,000.

What do you have to do?

Please tell us your personal story, in 500 words or less: what does it mean for you to be Good Without God? How do you live out your positive values as a Humanist, atheist, agnostic, secularist, or freethinker? Please write in the first person.

We highly encourage you to share specific examples about your god-free involvement in service to country or community; how your non-religious approach to life helped you to get through a difficult time; or how it transformed your relationships with your family and the people you care about.

500 words? That’s nothing. That’s practically a sentence… In a Faulkner novel.

Not only is the $1,000 up for grabs, the first 25 people to submit an essay will receive a signed copy of Harvard Humanist Chaplain Greg Epstein‘s forthcoming book, aptly titled Good Without God: What a Billion Non-Religious People Do Believe.

All the details about where to send your entry and what to include in it can be found here.

Good luck! If someone who visits this site wins the contest, I’ll give you a bonus prize!

    Jenelle — I’m not sure the answer to that. I would email them (address found here) and ask your question.
