The objective of the contest is to promote ethics among children using the "Six Pillars of Character". The contest encourages students to improve their writing and drawing skills along with creating public awareness in the achievement of students.  This contest allows local FCE members to participate in a nationwide project and to promote and market FCE to the community during National FCE Week.

Any current fourth grade student attending a public, private or home school is eligible to participate in the FCE Essay and Artwork Contest. The contest begins September 1 and runs through March 31 with promotion announced during National FCE Week.

The National first, second and third place winners will be announced at the National FCE Conference. The winners will receive Visa gift cards of $250, $125, and $50, respectively.

Each year a different character value will be the theme from the "Six Pillars of Character". The contest themes will run in the following order:

Trustworthiness 2019
Respect 2020
Responsibility 2021
Fairness  2016
Caring 2017
Citizenship 2018
