Center for Alcohol Policy 2019 Annual Essay Contest

The Center for Alcohol Policy is accepting entries for its 12th Annual National Essay Contest. The topic for this year’s contest is:

During the United States Supreme Court 2019 term, the Court announced in June its decision in Tennessee Wine and Spirits Retailers Association v. Thomas. Based on the Court’s decision, what do you believe will be the next steps for alcohol policy in the United States?

The deadline for entries is January 17, 2020. Winners will be announced soon after. Cash prizes are available to the first, second and third place winners in the amounts of $5,000$2,500, and $1,000. respectively.

When Prohibition was repealed in 1933, the 21st Amendment put alcohol control in the hands of the states. With the annual essay contest, the Center hopes to foster debate, analysis and examination of the public policies put in place following the passage of the 21st Amendment and their implications for citizens across the United States.
