Essay contest winners “have the power”

Earlier this spring, the Alliance recognized Title I middle school students who excelled in our annual anti-bullying writing contest.

This year’s theme, “I have the power,” encouraged students to think about bullying and use their power to help eliminate it in our schools and communities. Students could write a poem, essay or personal narrative (fiction or non-fiction) about a time they used their power to stand up for themselves, a friend, or even a stranger. Winners received a commemorative plaque, certificate, and monetary gift card from Target.

2016 essay contestOverall winners included: First place – David Nguyen, Allen Middle School; Second Place – Joseph Solomon, Northeast Guilford Middle School; and Third Place –  Selene Berry of Guilford Middle School. Pictured are the three winners from Northeast Guilford Middle School.

Many thanks to Katie Edmunds, VP of Health Promotions, for heading up the essay contest.
