Aarti Sabharwal of Virginia was recently named the “Most Philosophical Third Grader in America” as a result of her entry in the national 2014 Kids Philosophy Slam contest. This contest is news to me. From the contest website:
The Kids Philosophy Slam is designed to make philosophy accessible and fun for kids of all ages and abilities, to promote a philosophical dialogue between kids and adults, and to promote a greater awareness of philosophy and education in everyday life. Over $3,000 in prizes are available to students & schools. Home school participation as well as international participation is encouraged.
Aarti’s entry was a response to the question, “Truth or beauty: which has a greater impact on society?” You can read her answer here.
