The Sport for Every Girl organizing committee would like to thank all of our entrants into our 4th Annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day Essay contest. We had close to 200 entries this year and enjoyed reading all of the great ideas that students had. It was difficult to decide on a winner so we also named honorable mentions to recognize the outstanding work of many. Please visit the Past Essay Contest Winners page to read the winning essays.

This year we received a collective essay written by a team. While this was not part of the original parameters, the organizing committee appreciated their innovation so much we will likely be adding this as a category in the future. Congratulations to the Seabreeze Basketball team, made up of girls in 4th through 6th grades and their Coach Andrew Paris. Each one of you contributed to this honor!
