We are pleased to announce the 6th Annual, Young Patriots Essay Competition. The goal of the contest is to raise patriotism awareness among our middle and high school students and is a joint initiative between Dell Inc. and the Special Operations Communicators Association (SOCA).
Most of these contests ask middle school students (often sixth graders) to write a short essay of 250 words, with essays judged by league staff or a panel of municipal officials. Contest winners are often presented with an award at the league's annual convention and winning essays are published in league journals or newsletters.
