Thanks to Mrs. Roberts for letting me know about this essay contest. It’s due March 1st, for any 5th grader interested. See the link below for all the details.
Fifth grader, you are tomorrow’s leader. The education you’re receiving now and in the future is an investment in yourself and gives you tools to make better decisions, solve problems and improve your life and others. Once you’ve graduated from high school, you can gain additional skills or training through higher education.
How will you better your community by attending a college, university or training program?
Your answer could win you one of FIVE college savings accounts from Virginia529 to help fund your future education. You will join the other winners in being recognized on stage at Richmond Raceway. Your winning essay also comes with an award and Papa John’s pizza for your school’s 5th grade graduation ceremony.
