At the end of each semester, the three bloggers who have generated the most web hits will receive a cash prize. To apply, please send an application consisting of the following to nelis(at)momentmag(dot)com by October 10, 2010:

  • Your name,age, university and major.
  • 1-2 short paragraphs on why you’re interested in Jewish issues and what unique perspective and background you bring to the blog.

    1. Writing for nothing is never good — an undisclosed prize for the number of page hits? Plus the blog gets 4 specific, original ideas for posts from every applicant? The winner here seems obvious, and it’s not the poor student writer.

      • Andie, that’s a valid point. I wouldn’t have posted this had I not believed that for a student writer, a positive experience with an established magazine like Moment could prove to be valuable for the long term. Plus, there is *some* payment promised. But you are right to raise your objections.
