The Naval Postgraduate School’s Center for Homeland Defense and Security is running its sixth annual essay contest through January 20th, 2013. You can see the contest rules and the essay evaluation criteria at http://www.chds.us/?essay/overview.
The contest is open to anyone interested in homeland security — anyone except for Center for Homeland Defense and Security faculty, staff, students and graduates.
The winning essay will be announced around May 31, 2013.
Here are the essay questions from previous years:
2008 — “What single aspect of Homeland Security has been most successful, and what single aspect will be most critical to Homeland Security success?”
2009 — “What advice concerning Homeland Security would you give the next presidential administration and why?”
2010 — “How can, or should, the United States make homeland security a more layered, networked, and resilient endeavor involving all citizens?”
2011 — “Claude Debussy said “Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art.” How might this idea be applied to how we approach homeland defense and security?”
2012 — “Identify a theory or insight from a field outside homeland security that has not been applied to homeland security but should be.”
