This year, they’re looking for original, thoughtful, provocative student voices to answer this question: It’s clear that the political system in the US isn’t working for many. If you had to pick one root cause underlying our broken politics, what would it be and why?

They’ll select ten finalists and two winners total—six from college students, six from high schoolers. Each winner will be awarded a $1,000 cash prize and a lifetime Nation subscription. The five finalists will be awarded $200 each and subscriptions. The winning essays will be published in The Nation magazine and featured atthenation.com. The ten finalists will be featured at thenation.com.

Entries will be accepted through Saturday, June 30, 2013. Winners will be announced by Monday, September 9.

The contest is open to all matriculating high school students and undergraduates at US schools, colleges and universities as well as those receiving either high school or college degrees in 2013. Submissions must be original, unpublished work (the writing can have been published in a student publication). Each entrant is limited to one submission. Past and present Nation interns are ineligible.

Submissions and questions can be e-mailed to studentprize@thenation.com. Please include the essay in the body of the e-mail. All e-mailed submissions will be acknowledged.
