The First annual English Editorial Competition

Here is an idea for to revitalize the CD forum.
A National Editorial Competition.
it could be like the televised speech contest but for journalists. There would be some cash reward for the winner , as well an official document that students could use in their portfolio to help them get a job.
There could be several threads with topics and the winners of each thread would progress to a final thread where the best editorial would win.
Judges could be from senior forum members or from CD editorial staff, or you could even contact deans of major Chinese Universities from the English departments to be a judge.......lots of possibilities.
I would like to see post graduate thesis level English -With really "hard hitting" topics like
1. Solutions to world pollution of the Oceans, that threaten fishing stocks.
2. How to make the UN a more effective world governing agency.
3. Should Iran be allowed to possess nuclear weapons
4. How to prevent mining accidents.
5. What are basic human rights.
6. Are all people created equal.
7. What is right -evolution or intelligent design.
8. Should there be a world standard currency.
9. Is it right that all foreign countries have no say in internal politics.
10. Should there be limits to freedom of speech
11. What will be the future of the earth be like in 50 years.
12. Should nuclear weapons be banned.
anyway these are just a few topics off the top of my head.........
anyway you could pitch the idea to CD bosses and see what they think......

It would be nice if they promoted the completion on the front page, it could really be successful I think...

"The First annual English Editorial Competition"   has a nice ring to it ....don't you think?

anyway I will start a thread and see what the forum members think.
