American Legion Essay Contest Winners

Congratulations to our students who received awards from American Legion's Americanism Essay Contest.

Each year, Mrs. Iannone's eighth grade English students participate in the American Legion's Americanism Essay Contest.

Our young writers responded to this prompt: How does learning about government and our America help you to become a future guardian of the liberties of our country?

We are very proud to announce that Mateo U. earned first place at the local level; furthermore, his essay has moved on to the state competition. In addition, both Elsa M. and Caleb C. earned Honorable Mentions for their excellent essays.

Students were honored at an awards ceremony at the American Legion Patriot Hall in Vienna, along with local police and firefighters, who will also be receiving awards. Congratulations to all!
