A most welcome announcement from Craig Biddle, the editor of The Objective Standard:
I’m pleased to announce the first annual Objective Standard Essay Contest. Here are a few details:
Topic for 2010: The Moral Foundation of Capitalism
Few people who advocate capitalism know fully what this social system is, and even fewer are able to defend it on moral grounds. What is capitalism? What are its distinguishing characteristics? On what moral principles do they depend? And why are so few people able to name and uphold these principles?
First place: $2,000 plus publication in TOS
Second place: $750
Third place: $300
The contest is open to anyone ages 18 to 35, excluding TOS contributors. Students and non-students alike are encouraged to enter.
Submission Deadline and Announcement of Winners
The deadline for submissions is August 15, 2010. Winners will be announced on October 15, 2010.
For more information, visit www.TheObjectiveStandard.com/Essay. And please pass the information along to anyone you know who might be interested in entering the contest.
