CPETLogoA great opportunity for college students:

“The Center for Political and Economic Thought at Saint Vincent College is proud to announce the Fourth Annual Douglas B. Rogers Essay Competition.

Honoring the memory of Doug Rogers, a young scholar of great promise who died tragically in 2011, the competition is meant to encourage undergraduate students to join the Center in discussing themes of Western Civilization such as individual freedom, limited constitutional government, free market economics, and the philosophical and moral foundations of America and the West.

This year students are asked to reflect on the themes of George Washington’s Farewell Address and their relevance to contemporary American politics and constitutionalism.  The first place winner will receive $2,000 and an invitation to attend an awards dinner and lecture to be held at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania on April 13, 2016. Second and third place winners will receive invitations to said awards dinner and $1,000 and $500 respectively.

…The competition is open to all full-time undergraduate students currently registered in any field of study at a college or university in the United States or Canada.
