Second Annual Presidents' Day Essay Contest to Give Students and Teachers a Chance at Prizes
PLYMOUTH, Mich., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Which U.S. President would you like to have lunch with?
That's the question Community Financial Credit Union is asking local elementary and middle school students to answer in an essay contest announced today in honor of Presidents' Day.
Between now and Presidents' Day, February 18, essays will be accepted from students explaining which U.S. President – from George Washington to Barack Obama – they would like to sit and have lunch with and why. Essay forms are available online at www.cfcu.org/contest.
"With Inauguration Day having just passed, we wanted to once again give students the opportunity to provide their thoughts on our nation and the presidency as only students can," said Natalie McLaughlin, Community Financial education partnership coordinator. "There is no doubt that our students can provide some unique and fresh ideas."
Essays will be judged by a group of Community Financial team members in two separate categories – 4th and 5th graders and 6th through 8th graders. The top essay author in each category will earn $100 as well as lunch for their classroom with Community Financial President and CEO Bill Lawton. Each category will also have five finalists who will each receive a $10 Subway gift card. The winners' teacher will also receive a $100 gift certificate to be used for supplies for their classroom.
