This years winners were honored during the Branch 104 April meeting.
Any student (including Home Schooled), grades seven through twelve, may enter the contest. The contest is not restricted to children of the FRA or its Auxiliary. However, each entrant must be sponsored by an FRA member in good standing or a current chartered branch. Each winner will received an attractive plaque citing his or her achievement and will be forwarded on to the Regional competition. Regional winners will be forwarded to national competition.
The essay contest's grand national prize is $5,000 with additional prizes of $2,500 for first place, $1,500 for second place, and $1,000 for third place in grades seven through twelve. GOOD LUCK TO ALL OUR WINNERS.
