I’ll go on record as saying, definitively, that Ayn Rand is not exactly my cup of tea…  BUT, the Ayn Rand Institute runs a very lucrative student essay writing contest.  The first prize in each division is awarded a $10 000 cash prize.

The student contest is organised by Grade Level.  I have brought in copies of the materials to support the essay writing contest for each of Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead.

Atlas Shrugged

The Fountainhead

If you think you might be interested in this contest next year, come and see me, get the books, get your reading and notes done at your leisure, ready to respond to the essay questions when they are made available.  Since this is the first year I’ve been aware of this contest I can’t say whether or not the essay topics are the same each year, or whether they change.
