This year’s topic is “How Have the Events of 9/11 Changed America?”
Students must write their essays during school hours, but are encouraged to research information at home.
Essays are due to their classroom teacher soon and will be collected before the students leave for winter break.
The Ruritan essay committee consists of Cliff Britton, Carl Galligan, Jerry Shank and James Conrad.
They will judge each essay to determine the top three winners.
Winners and their families as well as their teachers and principal will be invited to the club’s meeting Feb. 15 at 6:30 p.m. At the meeting, the three winning essays will be read by each student and U.S. savings bonds will be awarded. First place wins $100, second place wins $75 and third place wins $50.
