KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - Educators at Western Michigan University want to find out what people have learned from Star Wars about living an ethical life.

The Kalamazoo school’s Center for the Study of Ethics in Society is sponsoring an essay contest titled “The Most Important Thing I Learned about Ethics from ‘Star Wars.’”

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1leBA4Z ) the contest stems from Star Wars fan and professor Sandra Borden, who is the center’s co-director. She says Stars Wars and the battle between good and evil in the movies often finds its way into her lectures.

Essays of 100 words or less should be posted on the center’s Facebook page by Monday. The winner gets a 1996 action figure.

The latest of the films, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” opens this month.
