Congratulations to the winner, runner-ups, honorable mentions and all the students who entered the GLA writing contest this year. Enjoy their work and be inspired!
Everyone is invited to attend the Good Life Celebration.
The judges are independent community professionals, including university professors, authors, journalists, and retired teachers. All essays were judged twice with no identifying student information and scores were averaged. The top 25 essays were passed to the final round, again with no identifying student information. The Winner and Awards of Distinction were unanimous decisions.
This endowment-funded contest was developed in memory of Dottie Yeck.
