Excerpt

This series of books owes its existence to the generosity of Messrs. Hart, Schaffner, and Marx of Chicago, who have shown a special interest in trying to draw the attention of American youth to the study of economic and commercial subjects, and to encourage the best thinking of the country to investigate the problems which vitally affect the business world of to-day. For this purpose they have delegated to the undersigned Committee the task of selecting or approving of topics, making all announcements, and awarding prizes annually for those who wish to compete.

For the year ending June 1, 1909, there were offered: --

In Class A, which included any American without restriction, a First Prize of Six Hundred Dollars and a Second Prize of Four Hundred Dollars;

In Class B, which included only those who were at the time undergraduates of any American college, a First Prize of Three Hundred Dollars and a Second Prize of Two Hundred Dollars;

In Class C, which included any who had not had academic training, a First Prize of Five Hundred Dollars.

Any essay submitted in Class B or Class C, if deemed of sufficient merit, could receive a prize in Class A.
