Annual Troy Moore Undergraduate Ethics Essay Contest

Each year, the Jean Beer Blumenfeld Center for Ethics sponsors an ethics essay contest, open to all GSU undergraduates. The contest commemorates Orbun Troy Moore III, who attended GSU in the 1990s. His life was tragically cut short in an automobile accident before he graduated. He was awarded his degree posthumously. The annual Troy Moore Undergraduate Ethics Essay contest is made possible through the generosity of the Moore family. They honor the memory of the young man they called “Buddy.” He had inspired his family and friends by transforming himself as a student and a person with a GSU humanities education. The annual contest in his name offers undergraduates the opportunity to grow with careful research about themes in ethics.

Sponsored by the Jean Beer Blumenfeld Center for Ethics

Prizes: First $250, Second $150, Third $100

The Troy Moore essay contest is an annual competition that challenges Georgia State University undergraduates to analyze the urgent ethical issues confronting them in today’s complex world. Students are encouraged to write thought-provoking and well-informed essays that address ethical questions in a reasoned and rigorous way.
