TAP Proudly Presents
The 2016-2017 High School Essay Contest Winners!

Although we did not feel any of the entries in this year's contest met the requirements to win the First and Second Place prizes, we did want to recognize two Honorable Mentions:

Honorable Mention

Ella, Utah

Daisy Kwok, John Foster Dulles High School, Sugar Land, Texas

The High School Question:

How are different groups (religious, ethnic, sexual orientation, socioeconomic, racial, and/or other groups) portrayed in the media? Choose one group that is particularly affected by bias in the way it is depicted and give specific examples. If you were the producer of a movie or television program or the editor of a newspaper or magazine, what would you do to ensure objective and balanced portrayals of this group?

Entries must not exceed 1,000 words, must be typed, must be clearly organized, and must answer all parts of the question.
