In 500-600 words, discuss the pros and cons of a country’s healthcare system in terms of economic principles and effectiveness. Feel free to compare across countries and/or systems. Please cite any outside sources.

In addition to receiving cash prizes, winning submissions will also be published on our website. Winners will be selected based on depth of research and analysis. Though we have no preference for essay structure or format, more successful essays tend to use strong evidence and organization to advance a clear thesis. Winners will be announced online by December 25th.
Please send all questions to email@example.com.
