Announcements: Bastiat Prize, Cato University

Here are a couple upcoming opportunities for any interested libertarians:

The Bastiat Prize for Online Journalism

"IPN's Bastiat Prize for Journalism was inspired by the 19th-century French philosopher and journalist Frédéric Bastiat.

The prize was developed to encourage and reward writers whose published works promote the institutions of a free society: limited government, rule of law brokered by an independent judiciary, protection of private property, free markets, free speech, and sound science.This year, the Bastiat Prize has been expanded and includes a new prize for online journalism (including blogs and self-published articles).

Bastiat Prize for Online Journalism
(One winner only, $3,000)
