Submissions sought for the 2008 Great American Think-Off

The 2008 Great American Think-Off question asks: "Does immigration strengthen or threaten the United States?"

A panel of judges will select four finalists to come to New York Mills for the final debate June 14. The names of the four finalists, who each receive $500 plus travel, food and lodging expenses, will be announced May 1. A parade down Main Avenue to honor the finalists will be held in New York Mills June 14. The winner is decided by the audience at-tending the debate and she or he will be named "America's Greatest Thinker."

Celebrating its 16th year, the Great American Think-Off is a national philosophy competition providing an opportunity for ordinary people to voice their opinions on some of life's more perplexing questions.

For the complete story and contest information see the Wednesday, Jan. 9 edition of the Park Rapids Enterprise.
