I guess we all have our niches in life. For example, here at the Land Use Prof blog, Matt is the guru of finding interesting articles being published on land use issues.
Maybe my niche can be finding equally interesting writing competitions. Here's another one in addition to the one I posted earlier this week:
The Planning & Law Division of the American Planning Association announces its 27th Annual Smith-Babcock-Williams Student Writing Competition. The competition, which honors the memory of three leading figures in American city planning law — R. Marlin Smith, Richard Babcock, and Norman Williams — is open to law students and planning students, writing on a question of significance in planning, planning law, land use law, local government law or environmental law.
The winning entry will be awarded a prize of $2,500 and will be submitted for publication in The Urban Lawyer, the law journal of the American Bar Association's Section of State & Local Government Law. In addition to the first prize, the Competition will offer a second place prize of $1,000 and up to two Honorable Mentions of $250. Winners will be announced by September 15, 2010.
