2024 Think-Off Essays DUE APRIL 1ST!

Writers, armchair philosophers, and everyday people should hurry and share their thoughts about the 2024 Great American Think-Off question: "Is freedom of speech worth the cost?"

People of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to submit an essay expressing their thoughts by the deadline of April 1, 2024. The top two entrants on each side of the debate will each receive $500 plus travel expenses, along with the chance to win the title of America's Greatest Thinker at this year's annual debate held on Saturday, June 8, 2024, in New York Mills.

There are many costs to consider when it comes to freedom of speech, and for this philosophy contest, you must choose whether or not you think those costs are worth it.

Perhaps you believe freedom of speech should be supported at any cost as a matter of principle and a First Amendment right. Or maybe you think the possible negative effects, such as allowing controversial books in school libraries or potentially racist statements to be made at universities outweigh the benefits.

Whatever your position, share your thoughts and you could win $500 and possibly become "America's Greatest Thinker" for 2024!

It's the 31st year of the Great American Think-Off and we think YOU have what it takes to win! It's not too late to start writing, just submit your essay by this Monday, April 1!
