For more info, contact the name at the end of the message. I'm not involved with this but I like the conversation it provokes.

The Institute for Humane Studies has just launched its first Freedom and Creativity Essay Contest with $5,000 in prizes, and I
wanted to be sure to let you and your students know. The contest is open to all full-time students of any nationality and age, as well as anyone 25 or

The essay topic asks students to consider how a society's level of personal freedom impacts individual's creative powers. Contest details, rules, and online submission forms can be found at http://www.TheIHS.org/essay

The March 1, 2005, deadline for submission is approaching quickly, so I appreciate your help in letting your students know about this opportunity.
