Essay Contest Finalists Announced

Students from 13 schools are among the 28 finalists of the 2013 York County Student Essay Contest.

A total of 333 contest entries were submitted by students from across York County. The contest is organized by the York County Board of Commissioners and York County Communities That Care. It is sponsored by the Memorial Health Systems Foundation.

The finalists will gather at a ceremony on Sunday, April 7 to receive their awards. The 2 p.m. event will be held at the York Learning Center, 300 E. 7th Ave. in North York Borough.

The top three prize winners will be announced during the ceremony. The grand prize winner will win $2,000, the second-place finisher will win $1,000 and the third-place winner will win $500. The 25 other finalists will win $100 each.

The contest was open to all 11th and 12th graders who reside in York County. The entry period began in December and concluded in mid-February.

The contest topic prompted entrants to discuss the most significant challenges facing teens today, and to offer ideas about how the community can help address them.

The primary goal of the contest was to provide an opportunity for local students to be recognized. The specific essay topic was selected to generate conversation among families and teens about the difficulties facing teens today, and to gather input and ideas for improvement directly from teens themselves.
