At the Florida Futures Project, we dare you to think differently and challenge the status quo. We categorically reject cynicism and inaction. Instead, we challenge you to imagine what Florida could be and how your idea will improve lives in your community and across our state. Excluding your bibliography, your essay should be limited to 1,250 words. Any essays exceeding this limit will be penalized accordingly. Any high school senior (as of September 1st, 2020) in the state of Florida is eligible for the essay competition.
