The LWV Greenwich and Affiliate High School Clubs Announce 2021 Student Essay Contest

The LWV Greenwich and their affiliate high school clubs announce the theme of their 2nd annual essay contest for Greenwich students in grades K-12.  In honor of America’s first female vice president, this year’s theme is “Dear Madam Vice President”. Students are encouraged to write a letter to Vice President Harris, sharing their stories, advice, and wishes.

Students are asked to write an essay of up to five-hundred words and to email their submission to the LWV Greenwich Student Outreach coordinator, Anne-Marie Hesser at [email protected] by Sunday, March 21.  A panel of high school students will follow an anonymous judging protocol to review the essays and choose three winners: one each for elementary school, middle school, and high school. Children of LWV Greenwich board members are not eligible to participate.

Winners will be presented with their awards on Wednesday, May 2 at the LWV Greenwich’s Annual Dinner at the Riverside Yacht Club.
