He said this contest has a number of benefits.
“It gives young people a chance to do some research, learn more about the economy in Michigan, and to hopefully influence public policy in the state.”
Nash said the top essays will be presented to the state legislature and the Governor.
He said the top five finalists will be announced at the Chamber Foundation’s annual dinner in May and will receive cash prizes.
Entries for the contest must be submitted by March 15th.
