Supporting a Great Cause: The Sohn Investment Idea Contest

The Ira Sohn Conference Foundation is hosting a contest to help benefit children with cancer. They are looking for a set of talented applicants to submit investment ideas that will help further their cause.

The conference will bring together a group of highly-successful investors to exchange investment ideas while raising money to fund a mission to treat and cure pediatric cancer. The event takes place on May 25, 2011, and will give one applicant with a compelling analysis the opportunity to present a ten-minute investment presentation at the renowned Sohn Investment Conference.

Successful activist and value investors Michael Price, Bill Ackman, Seth Klarman, David Einhorn, and Joel Greenblatt, among others, will judge the investment ideas submitted and select the winner. Investment ideas must concern a marketable security from a company that has a market capitalization of over one billion dollars.

With more than $20 million already raised for an important cause, the event presents a great opportunity for successful investors to make a difference.

The deadline to submit the online application and investment idea is 5pm EST on Friday, May 20, 2011.
