Hurricane Preparedness Essay Contest and Scholarship for High School and College Students
Hurricanes are an ever-present fact of life in the Southern United States. Hurricane Katrina alone was responsible for $81 billion in damage with at least 1,833 persons killed. With climate change and increasing population of populated areas in states like Florida, hurricane preparedness is an important social responsibility. Yet people in cities as vulnerable as Fort Lauderdale or Miami often ignore hurricanes until it’s too late, or fail to prepare themselves, ranging from educating themselves on hurricanes to buying the necessary supplies to boarding up their homes and businesses correctly to repairing damage after the Hurricane.
Essays need to be submitted by August 31, 2014 and will be judged according to three topics. First, what are some ways that governments and non-profits can pre-educate and encourage residents to be more prepared? Second, what are the steps that one would recommend for a Florida family seeking to prepare against hurricanes? And, finally, does the essay writer think that the government should allow more (or less) building in flood-prone areas?
