Leaders of Tomorrow Essay Contest
Atlantic Business Magazine’s inaugural Young Leaders of Tomorrow essay contest is produced in collaboration with Huddle (New Brunswick) and The Independent (Newfoundland).
The topic to be discussed with this contest is deliberately open-ended. How do YOU define prosperity and what do YOU think needs to happen for Atlantic Canada to be prosperous within a decade? Our intention is to learn which issues are most important to our younger readers. Is it climate change? The state of democracy? Immigration? Food security? Technology, AI and the future of work? Something else entirely? That’s for YOU to decide.
Essays should be a concise and persuasive defense of your point of view, supported by fact-based research.
