Whether you’ve lived in America your whole life or you’ve only seen it in the movies, your unique perspective is requested. The America I Know.
As America grapples with its self-identity, we want to see your understanding of this vast and varied land. In collaboration with The Aspen Institute, we’re very happy to announce a new category: What is the America you know, right now? Open to participants worldwide. Two selected winners will receive a trip to the thirteenth annual Aspen Ideas Festival at the Aspen Institute’s campus in Aspen, Colorado for 3 days from June 22-July 1, 2017. Are we healing or hurting, rising or falling, together or divided? The winners of this category and other winners will be exhibited during the festival. **Winning trips include: Round trip economy airfare from Major Airport (including international) to Aspen, CO. 3-nights lodging in Aspen, CO.
