Congratulations to student Adelaide Ellis of Horace Mann Middle School! Her Veterans of Foreign Wars Patriot’s Pen essay was awarded 2nd place out of 120 Wausau middle school student entries. Students were encouraged to examine America’s history, along with their own experiences, by drafting a 300-400 word essay expressing their views based on the theme: WHY I HONOR THE AMERICAN FLAG. Adelaide won $75 and, more importantly, helped veterans and other citizens realize the depth middle school students possess in their understanding of our great nation.
