Essay Contest

The Annual Essay Contest is a rewarding, educational, and creative way for younger generations to educate themselves on and foster an interest in Rhode Island’s and our nation’s history. It not only promotes their abilities to research but it also encourages them to think outside the box, differentiating their work from others’ and making it their own unique composition. Each year, the committee offers three (3) cash prizes as scholarship for the hard work and creativity of the best essay writers. Essays are judged on sufficient and correct use of facts, clarity of organization and expression, correct spelling and grammar, and extent to which the question is addressed.
