Each year the fraser Institute holds a competition for students, designed to encourage and develop student writers.
- The contest is open to Canadian and foreign students. A student is defined as someone who attends school in the 2014/2015school year or is enrolled to attend in 2015/2016.
- Submissions will be considered from secondary and post-secondary (undergraduate and graduate) students in all disciplines.
- Entry must include a typed essay of 1,000-1,500 words, and a cover sheet including the student’s name, mailing address, phone number, e-mail address. High school students should include school and grade. Post-secondary students should include school, major, and year of graduation.
- Entries must include references cited from academic sources. Any academically acceptable referencing style may be used.
Please note that if you are planning to include a graph in your essay, you must send it to us in an Excel file with the underlying data in order that it can be recreated in house.
If you want to include a previously published graph for which you do not have the underlying data, you mustcite its source appropriately to prove that you have permission to reuse it.
Entries must be submitted online or by mail.
Entries may only be submitted once. Further submissions with revisions will not be accepted.
Failure to follow these rules may lead to disqualification from the contest.
Entries will be judged on originality, clear expression of ideas, and understanding of competitive markets.
All entries become of the property of the Fraser Institute. In addition to receiving cash prizes, winners may be published in Canadian Student Review once they have gone through the peer-review process
