"What is the meaning of life?" That's the question under consideration for the third annual Kids Philosophy Slam. Students in grades kindergarten through twelve express their views in essays, poetry or artwork to compete for the national title of "Most Philosophical" student in each grade level. The top four high school students debate the question at the national finals and the school with the most winning entries will be named the "Most Philosophical School in America." Registration is free and prizes are offered. Winning entries from previous years are available for viewing. A philosopher of the week will be featured on the Web site during the competition, with quotes and biographical material as well as links to other relevant resources all offering an overview of historically important philosophers.
