Virtue and Heroism: Exemplary Lives

In this edition, interested students and teachers will have the opportunity to present their reflections on the unity between virtues and heroism, based on the analysis of characters (real and/or fictitious), who have developed exemplary lives, in order to offer a positive framework of action to face the different situations of our daily life.

The essay contest topics will allow participants to delve into themes such as exemplary lives in virtue, the legacy of saints, the arts and popular culture in virtuous living, and new modalities of heroism, which is based on practicing virtue in everyday life.

All essays must answer at least 2 "core questions" to be eligible to participate in the contest or, alternatively, 1 "core question" plus 1 "supplementary question".
