Full title:

6th Panhellenic Philosophical Essay Competition for high school students: The experience of the stranger




Department of Philosophy, University of Patras, supported by CHS Greece and Panhellenic Association of Philologists, under the aegis of the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs

Synopsis of the event:

Following the first phase of the competition that takes place in various places around Greece, its final round is organized at the University of Patras. Out of hundreds of participating senior high school students, the best ones–approximately 20 students–qualify in this final round. The top two students represent Greece in the International Philosophy Olympiad that takes place later in the year, at a different country every year. CHS Greece played an important role in the establishment of the competition in 2012 and continues to support this initiative every year, while offering book prizes to the winners.
