Power Line Prize Update

The days are dwindling down to a precious few, so if you haven’t yet gotten to work on your entry in the Power Line Prize contest, it is time to get going. Or if, like me, you are not at all creative, it is time to prod a creative friend to get going.
The Power Line Prize, as you no doubt know, will be awarded to whoever comes up with the most effective way to dramatize the seriousness of the federal debt crisis. Over the next year or two, an epic battle will be fought in Washington over our country’s future, and we are hoping to generate a lot of effective material to convey to voters the importance of putting a lid on government spending. We especially want to reach young people; as I have often said, if young people fully appreciated how their futures are being mortgaged by our irresponsible government, they would take to the streets.
The contest closes July 15. Someone is going to win the $100,000 grand prize, and it might as well be you, or someone you know. Go to http://powerlineprize.com for contest rules and instructions on how to submit your entry. Or entries: there is no limit on how many songs, videos, paintings, screenplays, etc. you can submit.
We are delighted to announce that John Ondrasik (Five For Fighting) has signed on as a judge of the competition, along with Andrew Breitbart, Roger L. Simon, Hugh Hewitt and Glenn Reynolds. If you are a songwriter, it is nice to know that your entry will be judged by one of the best.
Entries can be in any medium. It would not have occurred to me that you can create a dance that addresses the federal debt crisis, but I learned tonight that a local dance studio is hard at work on a contest entry. And, along with videos, songs, paintings, etc., I hope we get some video games.
So it is time to get to work, or else encourage your creative friends to get to work. You can help salvage your country’s financial future, and possibly win $100,000, too.
