Aloha!

In this contest, a committee of 6 people, chaired by Endark, will nominate and select an "OP of the Month" and 1-4 "Honorable Mentions."

If you are the winner of the contest, you will be awarded with a free vote! A "free" vote is not promise to vote for you, but rather it's a promise to vote for you. We've assembled a committee of people who will give these votes (all are very qualified), Chaired by Tej. Winners should ask him for their free vote, giving him at least 4 days notice before the voting period expires. The purpose of this contest is twofold: (1) to incentivize quality forum content on the site, and (2) to spotlight excellent content on the forums in the hope of sparking conversation.

All threads are eligible as long as they were posted in the month in-question. While winners will be selected based on holistic evaluations, not by any specific rubric, some of the criteria judges might consider include: (a) whether it generated quality discussion, (b) whether the OP was substantive and thought-provoking, and (c) whether the OP was novel in its content. Here are the results:

Winner of the OP of the Month - April 2016:

Solon - How Much Immigration is Too Much
[http://www.debate.org...]

Honorable Mentions:

1. Cole - Technology in Labor Market
[http://www.debate.org...]

2. YYW - Some Thoughts on Hillary and Donald
[http://www.debate.org...]

3. Thett - Where Trump wins and what that means
[http://www.debate.org...]

Congratulations to all our honorees!

Congrats, Solon!

The latter bit should read: "to vote on your debate." I apologize for the confusion.
