The Nation's Spring Student Writing Contest

Charles Bittner, a friend of HAW, asks us to spread the word about The Nation's Spring 2008 Student Writing Contest. According to Bittner,

We're looking for original, thoughtful student voices to answer this question:

What have you learned from a personal experience that the next president should know before setting the agenda for the country?

Essays should not exceed 800 words and should be an original, unpublished work that demonstrates fresh, clear thinking and superior quality of expression and craftsmanship. We'll select five finalists and two winners--one from college, one from high school. Each winner will be awarded a $1,000 cash prize and a Nation subscription. The winning essays will be published and/or excerpted in the magazine and featured at TheNation.com. The five finalists will be awarded $200 each and subscriptions, and their entries will be published online.

Entries (only one per student) will be accepted through May 31, 2008. A winner will be announced by September 4. Please send entries to studentprize@thenation.com.
