News Coverage

We’re excited to report that NBC 4 featured our 2014 Celebration of Youth essay contest. Watch “D.C.’s Brightest Young Minds Honored” to see the student winners share their essays.

2017 Essay Contest Theme

The 2017 Essay Contest Theme is: Having a better world begins with each of us. Write an essay about a situation in your own life where you want things to be different than they are now. What is one small action you can do on a consistent basis that would make the situation better for you, and perhaps, for those around you as well. Why would you choose this action? What is the outcome or result you want?

Entries are due by May 1, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. For contest details, click here.
