PolicyMic's April 50 Under 30 Challenge Brings New Pundits Galore

Ah, how time flies.

Seems like just yesterday we published the first call for our April 50 Under 30 challenge and announced our goal to bring in 50 new, smart writers under the age of 30 within 30 days.

Guess what? We did it.

Thanks to PolicyMic's amazing community of supporters, pundits and contributors, we received a staggering influx of applications to write for us, and a brilliant new crop of talented millennials to join our platform.


PolicyMic's number 1 priority is to foster meaningful dialogue amongst thoughtful, passionate users; our April 50 Under 30 challenge winners are a great addition to our dynamite community.

We extend a heartfelt thanks to the following pundit superstars who helped us fulfill our goal by referring friends and contacts to PolicyMic: Adam Hogue, Addison WilliamsAngel Au Yeung, Christian Rice, Christine Salek, Heather Williams, Jinyoung Park, Marshall Cohen, Ryan Myers and Todd Ruffner. We couldn't have reached our goal without you!

We're thrilled to have our newest pundits on board, and look forward to more PolicyMic recruiting challenges to come!
