In the entry What’s the Matter with College?, NYT Magazine Deputy Editor Jim Schachter issues somewhat of a challenge to current undergrads:

I really hope you will take your arguments with Rick Perlstein to the next step and submit an essay in response. The deadline is Aug. 6. No, we’re not giving out a scholarship to the winner. But the best essay will be published in our Sept. 30th issue, and the runners-up online. Any of you who are aspiring writers can, I think, see the value even at this late date in history of being published in The New York Times Magazine. All the details are at http://nytimes.com/essay/.

Just wanted to promote this to the front page at this point; more later.
