Annual Essay Contest on Ayn Rand's novel, Atlas Shrugged, for college/university and 12th grade students. Essays will be judged on whether the student is able to argue for and justify his or her view--not on whether the Institute agrees with the view the student expresses. Judges will look for writing that is clear, articulate and logically organized. Winning essays must demonstrate an outstanding grasp of the philosophic meaning of Atlas Shrugged.
