Serving Waitsburg, Dayton and the Touchet Valley

"Our American Flag" essay contest

WAITSBURG—The veterans of the Waitsburg Post 35, veterans who are serving their community, are proud to offer the American Essay Contest to school students this year.

“The contest is a way for students to think about what a great place they live in, and how they can contribute here in Waitsburg,” contest organizers said.

The theme for this year’s contest is “Our American Flag.” Contest assignments will depend on the grade the student is in.

Grades 1-3: Draw or make an art project focusing on the American Flag.

Grades 4-12: Written essay. Essays may be as long as they see fit. It can be about the history of the flag, the people who were there, the way to properly display the flag, etc.

“Listening to the National Anthem may inspire the young writers to think of a subject,” organizers shared.

All essays or drawings must be turned in to their teachers by December 3, and winners will be announced on Pearl Harbor Day, December 7.

A gold, $100 bill will be awarded to each division winner.
