To date I have received 5 District submissions for the Department Level Middle School Essay Contest.

They are: 1st





If there is any post or District out there who believes they should be included in this list, please check with

your Post and then District Chairman to inquire on the status. There is still time for District level winners to

be submitted. Posts, if you do not have a District chairman and no other post in your district has a submission,

then I would consider your entry to be the District winner.

I believe the object of this competition is to get our middle school age children to think about this topic and hopefully

realize how fortunate they are to live in this country and also to think about the many reasons why. It is also possible

that this thinking process will plant the seeds for a Department or National Oratocial winner in the future.

Thanks in advance for all the posts that have already participated.

For God and Country,

Bill Feasenmyer

Americanism Chairman
