Write Freedom Essay and Win $ 2000

This essay contest takes its title from a 1951 poem by Langston Hughes: What Happens to a Dream Deferred?. The poem helped propel the civil rights movement in the United States. Today, it will hopefully inspire you to describe your dream deferred for the Middle East, which the United Nations calls the world’s least free region.

The “Dream Deferred” essay contest has two parts: one for Middle Eastern youth (25 and younger) and one for American youth (25 and younger). To participate, all you have to do is write a brief essay (600-2,000 words) addressing one of the questions below. Winners - selected by a panel of celebrity judges - will receive a $2,000 prize, with other prizes for top essays. Read the guidlines. and submit your eassy. Egyptians are particularly encouraged to submit eassys!

Saadeddin Ibrahim, Gloria Steinem, Azar Nafisi, and an official from the Cato Institute are all judges. Interesting. You don't normally see these people working together.
