American Legion Post 35 Essay contest
December 16, 2021
WAITSBURG-The Waitsburg Post 35 sponsored an American Essay Contest to students at Waitsburg Schools. The contest was a way for students to think about their country. The theme for this year's competition was "Our American Flag."
For the competition, students in grades 1 through 3 were challenged to use the image of our flag to create an art project. Students in grades 4 through 12 were asked to write an essay about the history of the flag, the way to display the flag properly, or other facts about the flag. Each of the winners received a $100 gold bill awarded in four age groups.
