Random Liberals

We are random liberals (who knew?). Collectively, we make up the greatest blog in the history of ourselves. We will blog about anything that suits us; mostly politics, with a little bit of religion and randomness to make the blog exciting.

DNC essay contest

The Democratic National Committee is holding an essay contest in conjunction with MTV's Choose or Lose campaign. (So is the RNC, but I figure not many people reading this will care about that one.) Anyone between the ages of 18 and 24 is eligible to enter. The essays are to be 300 words or less, on the following topic: Why should politics be important to youth and how can youth get more involved in the political process? A panel of judges will pare the entries down to the best ten, and then voters at mtv.com will choose the winner (I think; I'm not exactly sure how the second part works). The winner will present his or her essay as a speech on the first day of the Democratic National Convention. According to the convention website, the speech will happen during primetime, so there is a chance that it would be on national television.

I of course intend to enter. I encourage anyone of age to do the same. This is a magnificent opportunity for young voters to make themselves known and heard.

Here is the website for the contest.
