We are now accepting submissions for our Fall 2019 Essay Contest!
By writing one of the top responses, you will:
• have your work published in the Fall 2019 Issue of Equilibrium, the premier Cal undergraduate economics magazine.
• be recognized on BER’s social media and website.
• receive cash prizes of up to $50
Every semester, we pick a contemporary economics-related issue that Berkeley students of any major can write about. We then publish the best submissions in that semester’s issue of the magazine.
Our prompt for this semester is:
“The climate crisis has become a pressing issue not only in the United States, but also internationally. The concept of economic growth has recently been put into question by Greta Thunberg’s recent remarks at the United Nations. Is eternal economic growth a “fairy tale”? What is the role of environmental responsibility in economic growth?”
Write a short essay of up to 750 words to support your claim. If necessary, please cite your sources.
DUE DATE: Sunday, November 3rd at 11:59 PM
Please send your response as a PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line: “F19 Essay Contest: [Your name]”
This contest is open to all currently enrolled UC Berkeley undergraduates. Feel free to message us on Facebook or email us if you have any questions.
