The 6th Annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day Essay contest is officially in the books! We had some new schools submit entries this year in addition to the great works put forth by some familiar names. The level of creativity was quite engaging and we saw a number of entries this year work to infuse more scholarly evidence and support into their essays. Our participants keep upping the caliber of their work and we continue to be impressed!
Below is the list of winners and honorable mentions in each of the grade categories for this year. Please visit the Past Essay Contest Winners page to read the winning essays.
