We read many wonderful essays from all three topic areas and were impressed with the creativity of many writers.  It was difficult to decide on a winner so we also named honorable mentions to recognize the outstanding work of the young authors. Please visit the Past Essay Contest Winners page to read the winning essays.

Thanks again for submitting and look for next year’s essay ideas to be released in November 2014!

Team Recognition
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!
