Dear Maria,

We're hoping you'll know somebody who might want to submit an essay in *The
Nation's Student Writing Contest*
<http://link.thenation.com/click/7319410.23108/aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cudGhlbmF0aW9uLmNvbS9hcnRpY2xlL3RoZS0yMDE2LW5hdGlvbi1zdHVkZW50LXdyaXRpbmctY29udGVzdC8/5286823f039c1c4d1618a5e7Bacd07bd1>
.

We’re asking students to answer this question in essays not exceeding 800
words: *It’s clear that the political system in the United States isn’t
working for many young people. What do you think is the central issue for
your generation in Election 2016?*

We’ll select 10 finalists and two winners total—six from college students,
six from those in high school. Winners will be awarded a $1,000 cash prize
and a lifetime *Nation* subscription. Finalists receive $250. The winning
essays will be published in *The Nation* magazine and at thenation.com.

We'd be grateful if you could help spread the word. Many thanks for your
help. *Entries will be accepted through Monday, September 19, 2016 at 11:59
pm Pacific Standard Time.* The contest is open to all high-school students
and undergraduates at US schools, colleges, and universities, as well as
those receiving high-school or college degrees in calendar year 2016. *More
info here*
