For Constitution Day the Public Policy Institute is conducting its annual essay contest! This year’s prompt/topic will be, “Is/Should there be a constitutional right to a minimum level of subsistence?” – Basic support needed to live on.
For example, does the constitution guarantee a right to food, water, shelter, and other basic but necessary needs to live on (e.g. by way of: food stamps, public housing, homeless shelters, ect). There are no rigid guidelines but please keep your essay under approximately 5 pages, 12 font, double-spaced.
The essays will be judged by a committee formed by the Public Policy Institute & the THREE winnings essays will receive hefty gift certificates from Cullowhee/ Sylva’s favorite businesses!
Please email your essay, by September 20th, to: PurdyJoshua@aol.com .
If you have any questions email me (Joshua Purdy) or call the Public Policy Institute at 828-227-2086.
