PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Launch of 2013 Benjamin Franklin House Literary Prize in association with The Telegraph
“Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of” – Benjamin Franklin,
London, 15 January 2013 – Each year a question or quote exploring Benjamin Franklin’s relevance in
our time is open for interpretation in 1000-1500 words. The competition is open exclusively for young
writers, aged 18-25, with a first prize of £750, and a second prize of £500. Winning entries will be posted
online by media partner The Telegraph and at www.BenjaminFranklinHouse.org.
The Franklin quote for interpretation in 2013 is: “Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that
is the stuff life is made of.“ Entrants should interpret this quote for its significance today. All entries must
be received before 31 October 2013.
Franklin is one of history’s great figures. While he made lasting contributions in many fields, his first
passion was writing. He believed in the power of the written word as the bedrock of a democratic society
to inform and stimulate debate.
For nearly sixteen years between 1757 and 1775, Franklin lived at 36 Craven Street in the heart of
London, England. He is one of history’s great polymaths – a diplomat, patriot, scientist, inventor,
philosopher and more. He was one of the first American journalists, writing prolifically not only on politics
and foreign affairs, but on science, the arts and society. In 2006, Benjamin Franklin House, the world's
only remaining Franklin home, opened to the public for the first time as a dynamic museum and
educational facility. For more information see www.BenjaminFranklinHouse.org.
The Benjamin Franklin House Literary Prize is endowed by Benjamin Franklin House Chairman John
Studzinski, a leading executive and philanthropist.
