NEW YORK MILLS, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota sponsor of the annual Great American Think-Off says income inequality is this year’s debate topic.

Entrants will debate whether income inequality threatens democracy. Arguments should be based on personal experience and observations.

There is no fee for entering. Entrants must submit an essay explaining their position in 750 words or less by April 1 for a chance to win one of four $500 cash prizes and a trip to western Minnesota for the debate.

Two winning entries from each side will be selected. Winners will be invited to debate on June 11 at the Cultural Center in New York Mills.

Essays can be submitted online, by email or mailed to Think-Off, c/o Cultural Center, P.O. Box 246, New York Mills, MN 56567.
