2006 Essay Contest
The 2006 Essay Contest has been postponed as our sponsor for this year's event had to withdraw. The topic has been chosen, and will be announced as soon as we have teamed up with a new sponsor and the prize money has been guaranteed. We have not control over this delay, and to our regret, it may mean that the 2006 Essay Contest gets pushed into 2007.
Those wishing to get a head start would do well to note that familiarity with John Stuart Mill's On Liberty will be a great asset in performing well in this essay.
