Here's a reminder about a writing competition sponsored by the American Bar Association Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section (ABA-TIPS). TIPS is celebrating its 80th Anniversary this year, so entries are asked to address any part of President Roosevelt's "New Deal," the series of economic programs implemented in 1933-36. Papers can adress any aspect of that, to afford "the greatest degree of flexibility in writing."
Papers are due April 1, 2013.
First prize is $1,500 cash and airfare and hotel to the Annual Meeting in San Francisco. (fun!)
Second prize is $500. (not bad, and you also get recognition in the section magazine)
Third prize is an honorable mention. (Still would be cool for your resume.)
