Hyping the 2018 Campus Pundit Program on the Doc Thompson Show

Stephen Kent of Young Voices joined the Doc Thompson Show today to talk about his high hopes for the next generation and share how you can become an influencer on your campus.

“The young people who are actually coming up underneath millennials today … they are more conservative than their parents’ generation on a whole suite of issues,” Kent said.

Young Voices wants to help young writers hone their op-eds to be placed in college newspapers. First place in their program will win you $1,000. Listen to the full clip to learn how to get involved.

 

Announcing Young Voices’ Spring 2018 Campus Pundit Program

For two years, Young Voices has offered current college students the opportunity to submit an op-ed to our staff for editing without any long-term commitment. We have helped dozens of students place pro-liberty articles in college newspapers, including at top schools like Duke, Harvard, and Berkeley.

I’m happy to announce that Young Voices is relaunching our Campus Pundit Program for the spring 2018 term… with a twist!

In addition to editing op-eds at no cost, Young Voices will be rewarding the top three submissions and five honorable mentions with monetary scholarships. The grand prize winner will receive $1,000!

Please pass this opportunity along to any libertarian students in the U.S. you know — or apply if you’re one yourself! Young Voices is committed to supporting the development of future thought leaders for liberty.
