AMERICANS UNITED FOR SEPARATION OF CHURCH & STATE
STUDENT ESSAY CONTEST
The Greater Naples Chapter of Americans United’s essay contest encourages Florida Gulf Coast University students to reflect on why religious freedom and the separation of religion and government are important to them and their communities
This year’s contest focuses on the First Amendment to the Constitution and the respective “Establishment” and “Free Exercise” clauses. We invite FGCU students to submit a piece of original writing that responds to the topic and meets the criteria below.
The First Amendment to the Constitution of the U.S. states: “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . . .”
Does this strengthen or weaken the practice of religion in America?
