A $1,000 prize is being offered by the Ms. JD law blog and the Project for Attorney Retention for the best essay of 1,500 words or less on work/life balance.
The contest is intended to address the question: "How Do We Close the Gap Between Baby Boomers and Millennials on Work/Life Balance?" according to Ms. JD, which provides an online application form. It is apparently open both to lawyers and law students.
Essays must be submitted by Feb. 29, and the winner will be announced by March 28.
Meanwhile, members of the American Bar Association are also invited to submit an essay of 600 words or less to the ABA's Ross Essay Contest, which also provides an online entry form. This year's question is "Why do you believe the legal profession is the greatest profession in the world?"
The deadline for entries is March 3, and the prize for the winning essay is $5,000.
