Libertarian Essay Contests: Cash Prizes

Here are two libertarian essay contests that you should absolutely participate in for fun, to advance the cause, and maybe even to win a little bit of extra money (nothing like the profit motive to get a libertarian going, right?). One is open to anyone over eighteen, and the other is for undergraduate students, recent graduates, and interns in the DC area.

The New Threats to Freedom essay contest:

Summary: Write a short essay (maximum of 500 words) answering this question: "What is an emerging threat to freedom and why is it critical to address it in today's society?"

Prize: $500.

Deadline: August 15, 2010

Requirements: Open to anyone over 18. You have to publish the essay to a blog and then submit it to the contest. If you don't have a blog, but would like to participate, don't fret- I've got your back. I'll publish your essay here at THL so you can enter the contest.
