The WashingtonWatch.com blog is having a contest.
Take any part of the stimulus bill
and write a short case for why it’s good or bad. (Recommended: search
the bill for “$” – there are more than 350 of them.) Pick anything –
from an entire government department to the smallest program. You can
even pick a non-spending provision in the bill that you think will do
good or bad.
Entries are limited to 150 words, and they will be judged on
clarity, persuasiveness, creativity, and originality. You don’t have to
be an economist – if you are, you really must avoid being boring. If it
takes a haiku or an infomercial-style pitch to make your case, do it.
Winners will receive $100. Enter in the comments section here.
