KaiserEdu.org is hosting its annual essay contest, with this year’s essay topic President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which the U.S. House voted yesterday to repeal.
The competition is open to all undergraduate and graduate students, with first place receiving $1,500 and second place $750. Graduate and undergraduate students will be judged separately.
In the essay, students should imagine they’ve just been hired as a health aide to a member of Congress of their choice. That member asks the student to summarize what the next steps on health reform should be in 1,000 words or less. The recommendations should be explained and justified and major challenges should be identified and addressed.
Submissions are due Feb. 28. (Read more)
