Kids Philosophy Slam

Event draws entries from around the worldBy Nancy OvercottMonday, May 7, 2001

"This could be an amazing event," says John Davis, creator of the Kids Philosophy Slam, for which 4,300 kids in grades 1-12 from all across this country and as far away as Turkey and Malaysia responded to the question, "Which is more powerful, love or hate?" Kids in grades 1- 4 had the option of presenting their ideas in pictures or a combination of pictures and words, while the older kids expressed their ideas in essays of 700 words or less. Youngsters in special classes contributed entries to the Special Kids Philosophy Slam.

The entries are judged on originality and creativity, strength of argument and clarity, expression of personal experience, spelling, and grammar.

Prizes will go to the winners and runners-up for each grade level from 1-7. The top two Special Philosophy Slam entrants will also receive prizes and the school that sent the most entries will receive the title of "The most philosophical school in America."

On April 9, judges announced the four teen semi-finalists (see page 7), each of whom will receive a $500 savings bond, two nights lodging for their parents and themselves, and a travel stipend for transportation to Lanesboro.

On the morning of May 12, from 9:00 to 12:00, a free art show at Cornucopia will feature entries of paintings and drawings by kids from grades 1-4. On the same day at 2:00 p.m. the four teen semi-finalists will debate their positions in front of a live audience at the Lanesboro Community Center. Call 507-467-2446 for reservations and tickets--$8 for adults, $4 for kids. High school students are especially encouraged to attend.

Those attending the debates will have a chance to ask the finalists their own philosophical questions about love and hate and cast votes for the grand champion, who will earn the title of "The most philosophical student in America." Essays of the four finalists are now available at www.philosophyslam.org. Questions may be submitted via e-mail, regular mail, by dropping them off at Cornucopia, or on special cards on the day of the debates. The best questions will receive Kids Philosophy Slam sportswear donated by Dodger Industries of Fayetteville, NC. The top student question will receive a $100 savings bond.

Davis credits the wide-ranging capabilities of the Internet, Associated Press coverage, and the TV show "Good Morning Colorado" for the .....
