Dear Lower Manhattan Arts Academy, 


I am an undergraduate at Columbia, studying Economics-Mathematics. I am an Executive Director at Columbia Economics Review, an undergraduate economics journal sponsored by the Department of Economics at Columbia. It is my great pleasure to share with you the opportunity for your high school students to participate in our annual economics and finance essay competition.


This year, we are asking students to respond to the following prompt: Choose a 2016 presidential candidate and select a plank of his or her economic platform. In a 500- to 600-word essay, please criticize or defend this policy proposal.  


The winner will receive a $100 prize. I would greatly appreciate it if you would circulate this opportunity among your students. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.


Have a wonderful day!


Best regards,


Alan Y. Lin

Executive Director

These qualities make them more likely to grow up to be a productive and engaged citizen, which makes our communities stronger.
