Great American Think-off

Here's a contest called the Great American Think-Off. Its sponsored by the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center, in New York Mills, Minnesota. The population of NYM is 1180 (a fact proudly proclaimed on the center's website). Bully for them for a) hosting the Great American anything, and 2) asking great questions, even if you don't choose to write and submit the 750 word essay.

If you don't want to write, you can always vote in their online poll.

The 2007 question:

Which do you trust more, your head or your heart?

2006: Which is more valuable to society: Safety or Freedom?

2005: Competition or Cooperation: Which benefits society more?

2004: Should Same Sex Marriages be Prohibited?

2003: Do We Reap What We Sow?

2002: Is the Pen Mightier than the Sword?
