Daud Shad

This past May we honored Daud Shad of Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, winner of the 2017 Profile in Courage Essay Contest for his essay on William Moore McCulloch, a Republican congressman from Ohio who risked his reputation, career, and standing in the Republican Party to support the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Daud's compelling essay demonstrates how McCulloch’s actions embody what President Kennedy described as political courage.

By participating in the contest, Daud and students across the United States learned about the importance of political courage. Help us get the word out to as many high school students as possible so that they, too, can get involved in the program.

Forward this email to a high school student you know so they can learn more about the Profile in Courage Essay Contest and apply for this amazing opportunity.

We had the pleasure of hosting Daud and his parents at the Centennial Gala which honored 2017 Profile in Courage Award recipient President Barack Obama. Daud got to meet President Obama and heard him speak about contemporary political courage. We look forward to hosting the winner of the 2018 Profile in Courage Essay Contest at next May’s Profile in Courage Award ceremony.

This year’s deadline – January 4th—is coming up soon so we’d appreciate your help in letting as many students and teachers as possible know about the program.

Please share this video about the contest with a high school student and tell them to visit our website to get all the details.

Thank you,
