14th Annual National Writing Competition on State-Based Alcohol Regulation
This year’s writing topic is:
After Prohibition, states generally issued licenses for on-premise and off-premise sale of alcohol. Drinking was thus largely confined to bars, restaurants, the home, and private clubs. Alcohol is now regularly offered in places like salons, grocery stores, clothing stores, and galleries. Is this trend towards ubiquitous availability of alcohol a good one? And is there a new regulatory regime needed to address this trend?
Deadline: 5:30 PM EST on January 28, 2022.
