Are you a skilled writer in philosophy and ready to take your analytical skills to the next level? IPO, begun in 1993, has annually invited students of secondary education around the world to participate in a rigorous essay competition on philosophy.
Each year, a different host country hosts IPO under supervision of the International Committee, the Steering Board and the FISP Steering Committee. It primarily aims to promote sound philosophical education at the secondary level as well as to encourage the solid development of critical and independent thinking, creativity and inquisitiveness among secondary students around the world. Each individual wishing to participate in IPO should pass hurdle requirements set by the National Organizing Committee in his/her home country prior to becoming qualified for the main event. Once qualified as an IPO participant representing his/her own country, not more than two, he/she can participate the main event taking place in May each year. Each IPO participant should write on one of the four philosophical topics given within four hours. The essay should be written in either English, German, French or Spanish (the chosen language should not be your mother language!). Evaluation takes place in three rounds; a panel of judges will carefully evaluate each essay submission at the first stage; the qualified ones move on to the next stage. Winning essays are awarded with medals (golden, silver and bronze) and honorable recognition. Check out here to find out about the IPO in great detail.
