Winning students in the annual Constitution Essay Contest will be honored Saturday.
This year’s topic was, “What does it mean to you to be a citizen of the United States of America? Why is U.S. citizenship tied to the right to vote, and how is that relevant to other issues our country currently faces?”
Judges, retired teachers and members of supporting organizations said they were impressed by the creative ideas, knowledge and insights many students expressed in their essays, according to a press release about the contest.
