Each year more than 125,000 students in grades sixth through eighth enter the VFW's Patriot's Pen youth essay contest. The essay contest encourages young minds to examine America's history, along with their own experiences in modern American society, by drafting a 300 to 400-word essay, expressing their views based on a patriotic theme chosen by the VFW commander-in-chief. The topic this year was an essay on What Makes America Great. Congratulations to seventh-grade students, OlaRose Ndubuisi, who placed first in the ECS contest and second in the District Competition; and to Jamie Iskandar, who was awarded second place in the ECS VFW Patriot's Pen essay contest.
Congratulations to seventh-grade student OlaRose Ndubuisi! She is one of three winners in an exciting Water's Worth It essay contest for middle school aged students. The Central States Water Environment Association took the liberty to sponsor the contests that asked students to write a short essay about the importance of water conversation and preservation. Central States Water magazine will be featuring OlaRose and her winning essay.
