We have extended the deadline for FP and the Belfer Center's Cuban missile crisis contest, which means you have another chance to save the world -- and possibly win a new iPad. The challenge is simple: We're looking for a persuasive lesson in 300 words or less flowing from the most dangerous nuclear standoff the world has ever know. If our judges select your lesson, you could win a new iPad and a subscription to Foreign Policy.
Before you enter, catch up on your history with FP's Cuban missile crisis +50 project. Award-winning author Michael Dobbs takes you inside the standoff as he live-tweets the events leading up to the crisis (you can follow him here). And be sure to check out FP's comprehensive, day-by-day guide to the 13 days that made up the crux of the crisis.
You can see the complete list of contest directions and regulations here.
