Too Cool For School Dept.
Dear Nation Reader,

We've extended the deadline for our Student Writing Contest to June 29!

We're looking for thoughtful student voices to answer this question in 800 words: What do you think is the most important issue of Election 2012? Essays should not exceed 800 words. 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 in The Nation and featured at thenation.com. Entries will be accepted through June 29, 2012. A winner will be announced by September 15. All high school and college students eligible. Submissions and questions can be e-mailed to studentprize@thenation.com.

We'd be grateful for any help in spreading the word in advance of next Friday's deadlineRead last year's winners and please tell any students you know about this opportunity.
Many thanks for your help!

All best,
Peter Rothberg, The Nation
