Prizes were awarded to four 8th grade students in the annual Constitution Observance Essay Contest


Wyatt Tucker of Blue Lake, Dhiren Suryadevera of Jacoby Creek, and Nyah Guynup of Fieldbrook were all awarded 1st Place for their respective schools and a corresponding prize of $250 each.

Abigail Mizera of Sunny Brea won the Grand Prize of $1,000 with an outstanding essay on how the constitution has effected women's rights.  This was one of the best essays ever to come out of the contest in over 10 years.

We ran into a snag with the US Treasury in that they no longer issue the paper savings bonds we have awarded in the past.  So if you happen to run into any of these winners, let them know their prizes will be arriving shortly in another form.
