Are you 'America's Greatest Thinker'?
Are you 'America's Greatest Thinker'?
January 1, 2007

NEW YORK MILLS, Minn. --They've popped the question for the 15th Great American Think-Off: Which should you trust more -- your head or heart?

The Great American Think-Off, sponsored by the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center, is a national philosophy competition designed to provide ordinary people a chance to voice their opinions on some of life's more perplexing questions.

The winner gets to claim bragging rights as "America's Greatest Thinker."

Would-be deep thinkers can enter by submitting an essay of 750 words or less by April 1. Essays can be mailed to the New York Mills Regional Cultural Center, P.O. Box 246, New York Mills, MN 56567; or submitted via the contest's Web site, http://www.think-off.org .

Four finalists will be selected by a panel of judges to travel to New York Mills to debate June 9 before a live audience that will decide the winner. The finalists will be announced May 1 and will each receive $500 plus travel, food and lodging expenses.

Last year's Think-Off posed the question, "Which is more valuable to society: safety or freedom?"
