The CUNY Ethics and Morality Essay Contest is funded by an endowment gift of $100,000 to the City University of New York by Dr. K. York Chynn and his wife, Noelle Chynn. This annual award is intended to promote and stimulate thinking by college students at CUNY about the topic of ethics, morality and virtuous behavior in their lives. More than ever, these issues arise not only in the personal relationships of individuals and family and friends, but also in the context of corporate, government and social responsibility, whether it is about treating others fairly and honestly, or food safety.

As stated on the flier, the goal of this essay contest is to stimulate college students to ponder the topic of morality and to broadcast the best essays, in an attempt to promote the teaching of morality in American education.
