Dear Allvoices writers,

I am excited to announce that the American Pundit contest is officially BACK! Our reigning American Pundit, itobin53, will have the chance to defend her title against a stiff competition — which includes you!

In honor of Presidents Day, the contest starts this year on Monday, February 18, 2013, at 12:01 a.m. Pacific time.

Here’s our first writing topic of the competition:
President Obama laid out a broad agenda in his State of the Union address, including tax increases, immigration reform, gun control and more. What area(s) do you think he should focus on going forward, and how should Republicans respond?

The author(s) of the best response(s) published Feb. 16-28 will be awarded $250 each and will be eligible for the $5,000 grand prize. At least one winner on this topic will be chosen from articles submitted during the first half of February. In general, submissions should be 400 to 1,000 words. Official rules here.

You’re welcome to submit on the topic as many times as you like. Just go to www.allvoices.com. Sign in and click the blue REPORT YOUR NEWS button at the top right of your screen. Then, be sure to check the American Pundit" box when you write your article. This checkbox will begin appearing on the 18th.

Whether you submit or not (and you definitely should!), be sure to check out the contest’s home page at www.theamericanpundit.com — we’ve got a beautiful new page and lots of great stories to follow.

When you’re not submitting, spend some time on our latest PoliticalPuzzle, which focuses on the Progressive Caucus. (If prompted, you’ll need to enable Java in your browser; we recommend Firefox when playing PoliticalPuzzle.)

Don’t forget to Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for all the latest updates.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions, and write on!

Best,

Dean Schaffer
