Two Hundred Eighty Three Area Teens Enter Contest
Congratulations to all of the students who entered the Dottie Yeck Good Life Award Writing Contest!
This endowment-funded contest was developed in memory of Dorothy Yeck, whose life philosophy was:
Being Good + Doing Good = Having Fun + Being Happy
The judges were independent community professionals, including university professors, journalists, and retired teachers. All essays were judged twice with no identifying student information and scores were averaged. The top 14 essays were passed to the final round, again with no identifying student information, and scored four times. The Winner and Awards of Distinction were unanimous decisions.
