The Plymouth-Canton Civitan Club is sponsoring an essay contest is to encourage students to study the time-honored and time-tested privileges and responsibilities of citizenship and, from their knowledge, to express in writing, ideas which relate to good citizenship in the modern world. This contest is open to all high schools students within the Plymouth Canton School district.
The topic for the 2013-2014 Citizenship Essay Contest is:
“The world has become more public because of digital chronicling and publishing of our personal lives. How has this impacted our ability to live in the moment and reflect upon it?”
Entries are due no later than 12:14 p.m. on March 10 to Mrs Giromini, Salem High English Dept., Room 2215. Details and application for the Civitan Essay Contest are available at this link and in the three P-CEP Counseling Offices.
The judging panel will consist of at least six English teachers from Canton, Salem, Starkweather and Plymouth high schools.
Local awards are $500 for first place, $300 for second place and $200 for third place.
The contest winners will be dinner guests of the Plymouth-Canton Civitan Club at their April 17 Dinner Meeting. At that time, each winner will be asked to read his or her prize-winning entry, and the awards will be presented.
