American Legion Auxiliary sponsors essay contest

American_Legion_Auxiliary_LogoThe American Legion Auxiliary is once again sponsoring their annual “Americanism Essay Contest” for students in grades 3-12. Each year members of the local Olson Grinde Post #348 choose four local winners from those submitted, and send them on to the state level, with another chance to win at the national competition. Prizes are awarded at each level.

The topic this year is: “How do we keep Lincoln’s promise to our veterans and their families?” Participants may download an entry form HERE.  Entries are due by March 11, 2016 and can be submitted directly to Kathy Disch, 613 DeForest Street, DeForest, WI 53532.  Questions? Call (608) 846- 5393.

There are six age categories of entries, each with requirements for the number of words allowed in the essay. In addition to recognition at the local, state and national levels, cash awards are available.
