How to Enter

Have you enrolled - or hold admission - in a university or professional training institution? If the answer is yes then you have an opportunity to win $1,000 or $500 or $300.

All you need to do is write an essay of not more than 5,000 words on the topic: "This is my President, and these are my reasons". The idea is to pick any Liberian you believe should be elected as President of our country in October and provide the reasons for your choice. You may choose among those who have declared their candidacies already or those who have not or even may not.

An independent panel of scholars will review the essays and choose the top three before the end of June. The winning selections will be those that are well written and persuasive. These will be printed in local newspapers, published online and read on local radio stations.

You can submit your essay through one of the following options
