Write an essay on “Does Poetry Matter?” and have a shot at a medal

America’s premier amateur philosophy contest, The Great American Think-Off, awards gold, silver, and bronze medals to the eventual winners plus money for expenses if chosen for the finals. This year’s great debate question is “Does Poetry Matter?”

We all know what Professors Theune and Diaz think, but what about the rest of you? Participants should check out the details at The New York Mills Regional Cultural Center’s Great American Think-Off website. The deadline for an essay of 750 words or less is April 1, 2001 (postmarked by, or emailed by)—no fooling. There’s no entry fee.
