Blog Post Contest

Want to have your college or grad school or job application really stand out? Get published! And, at America’s election blog, we want to publish you!

We are launching a contest for the best blog posts. Compose a blog post of 400-500 words and send it to us by October 10. There will be two categories, one for high school students and one for college students, and three winners in each category. In addition to publishing the winning posts, the winners will be invited to post through the remaining weeks of the campaign, so you can get published multiple times! If all that were not enough, winners will also receive a free, one-year, on-line subscription to America magazine!
