Announcing Our Fall 2017 Campus Pundit Program

It’s no secret that free speech is under attack on college campuses.

From Berkeley to Middlebury, many students and administrators seem intent on abandoning the university’s historical role of expanding students’ perspectives to instead enforce a narrow, dogmatic worldview.

For freedom’s sake, this needs to change.

Young Voices is proud to announce the return of our Campus Pundit Program, rewarding current college students in the United States $100 for successfully publishing an op-ed defending free speech in their student newspaper.

Last year, we helped publish 18 op-eds in some of America’s most notable universities, including Clemson, Michigan, Swarthmore, UT-Austin, and William & Mary.

This year, we hope to more than double that number.

Together, we can tackle campus censorship.
