CAROL GILLIGAN ETHICS ESSAY AWARD
$500
This award is funded by the Honorable Judge Ruth Kraft of the New York bench. The award is renamed every year in recognition of a different female philosopher.
 
The best essay of 750 to 1,000 words about the ethical dimensions of the case. Thus, from a philosophical perspective (but put in simple terms): In precisely what way does the problem the team is working on raise ethical issues? Precisely why are these issues “ethical” in nature? How do the positive and negative results compare against each other (consider short term, long term, qualitative as well as quantitative differences)? What about the intrinsic character of the actions? Why is the team’s solution to the problem ethically acceptable? Everything “counts”: persuasiveness, grammar, style, coherence, etc. Unlike the presentation, the team may not consult anyone outside the team (faculty, campus writing centers, etc.).
