William Wright Wins Foreign Affairs Student Essay Contest

Foreign Affairs has selected the winner of the third annual Foreign Affairs Student Essay Contest - sponsored by APSIA - The Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs. Congratulations to William Wright, a student at the United States Military Accademy.

In his essay, "American Foreign Policy Through Past and Future Elections," Wright argues that "like a former champion learning how to fight more capable opponents, the United States is becoming more judicious with its punches." He continues that "although American action abroad will manifest itself in a different way than in the past decade, I'm still willing to bet that foreign dust will find itself into my boots eventually."

Wright's essay was one of three selected by the Foreign Affairs editorial staff and published on Facebook. Foreign Affairs fans voted for the winner. The runners up were "Emerging Equality" by  Jesús Pérez of Hunter College and "Beyond Bush" by Joseph Singh of Dartmouth College. Click here to read all the essays.

The Foreign Affairs Student Essay Contest was open to all undergraduates. The magazine received submissions from all over the world. Next year’s contest guidelines will be disclosed in January 2013 on ForeignAffairs.com.
