Nearly ten years ago, the horrific terrorist acts of September 11, 2001 rocked New York City and the world. Those acts were bred from intolerance and hate; today, as the ten year anniversary of 9/11 draws near, we celebrate acceptance and the value of walking a mile in someone else’s shoes. MTV and Figment have teamed up to bring you a contest that encourages storytelling, creativity, and tolerance.Your task: Create a story with three elements: a character another writer created, a setting another writer created, and a situation where someone must deal with intolerance.Top three winners receive Ipads and are featured on MTV's Act Blog and on Figment.
