Lake County Republican Women Federated Americanism Essay Contest

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – Lake County Republican Women Federated announced that it is extending its deadline date for the popular Americanism Essay Contest for 11th graders in the 2018-19 school year.

The deadline for submitting entries to the contest has been extended from July 1 to Aug. 1.

The essay topic is, “In my opinion, what it means to be an American patriot.” The essay is to be 600 words or less.

Eleventh grade students, teachers and parents became aware of the Americanism Essay Contest in late March.

However, with all the pressure of year-end exams and all that goes on during the final days of the school year, students did not have time to focus on writing an essay, even though it could mean money in their pocket.

When young people reach the 11th grade they have developed thought and writing skills and, in most cases, look for opportunities to use these skills to show their understanding of what the world is all about. This is an opportunity for them to let their thoughts be known by putting them in print.

The contest cover sheet must include only the name, address, email, phone number, school name and the name of the organization sponsoring the contest, which is “Lake County Republican Women Federated.”

Lake County Republican Women Federated Americanism Committee will judge the Lake County entries, honor the winning student at a chapter meeting where the student will receive an award of $100. The essay will then be forwarded to the division for further judging.

The division winner will be recognized at a conference or convention at a later date and may receive a monetary or other award.

Students should mail their entries to Lake County Republican Women Federated, Americanism Essay Contest, P.O. Box 1566, Clearlake, CA, 95422, to arrive no later than Aug. 1.
