Last month, Young Voices announced the launch of our Campus Pundit Program, offering current U.S. students a $50 commission to publish a pro-liberty op-ed in their student newspaper. Today, I’m pleased to announce that we’re doubling the offer for articles promoting free speech.
There’s no question that the 2015-16 school year was one of the most depressing for student activism in recent history. From Yale to Mizzou and beyond, students across the United States have started calling for “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings” over free speech and the exchange of ideas. Now, more than ever before, it is critical that pro-liberty student writers are empowered to make the moral case for freedom.
That’s why Young Voices will reward any current undergraduate or graduate student in the United States $100 for successfully publishing an op-ed in his or her student newspaper defending the principles of free speech. Click here to learn more.
