“We sincerely hope this contest serves as a visible and important outlet for the work and ideas generated by NPS students,” said NPS alumnus and U.S. Naval Institute Chief Executive Officer retired Vice. Adm. Peter H. Daly.

The contest is open to NPS students, faculty and staff and offers a $5000 cash award for an essay that demonstrates critical thinking in an area of concern to the sea services. The winning essay will be selected by the U.S. Naval Institute’s editorial board and published in the institute’s flagship publication, “Proceedings.”

Essay contests are part of the institute’s focus on spurring conversation and debate around important naval matters and have been central to their work for more than 130 years. Essays based on thesis, research, or operational experience that best advances the military profession are eligible for submission. For more information, visit
