In a bid to foster debate, analysis and examination of the effects of state alcohol regulation, the Alexandria, Va.-based Center for Alcohol Policy has uncorked its third annual national essay contest, which challenges entrants to describe how state-based regulation of alcoholic beverage promotes public health and safety.
“For more than 75 years, alcohol has been effectively regulated in the United States by a state regulatory system guaranteed by the 21st Amendment,” says Brannon Denning, CAP advisory council member and Cumberland Law School professor. “This year’s essay contest is intended to highlight and explore the impact of state alcohol regulation on society and its role in protecting Americans in today’s environment.”
The top three winning entrants will receive prizes of $5,000, $2,500 and $1,000 respectively. Deadline for submission is November 22, 2010, and winners will be announced in 2011.
