In Your Own Words… An Essay Writing Contest

Good writing skills are needed even in this 21st century. Consistency, brevity and clarity are also needed on social media. In support of this need, Alpine Education Foundation conducts an Essay Writing Contest each year. Every student in the Alpine Union School District is welcome to participate.

AEF has partnered with Alpine’s Veterans of Foreign Wars and the essay topic was , “What Does It Mean to Serve?”! Background information, some selected winning essays and a few photos show that year’s program. Please know too the the VFW hosted the winners and their families for a dinner meal and the awards ceremony at the VFW Alpine Post. Many thanks to our Great Veterans for their service and for their community involvement!
