Students’ Salute to Veterans – Freedom Essay Contest

Essay Contest!

 What does freedom mean to you?




A significant day for our culture in the United States is Veterans Day. On this day, we honor all the men and women who have served and are serving in the military. Many of these men and women have given and will give their lives in order to see our nation secure. Here at the International Museum of Cultures, we believe that it is important for children to have an appreciation for cultures worldwide, but we also believe that it is extremely important for our children to hold appreciation for the culture in which they live. In honor of Veterans Day on November 11th, the museum is sponsoring the Freedom Essay Contest for students in 1st grade through 12th grade. First through sixth graders are encouraged write a 150 word essay on FREEDOM and submit it by November 8th for judging. Seventh through twelfth graders are encouraged to write a 250 word essay on Freedom and submit it by November 15th for judging. Prizes for first and second place will be awarded at the Salute to Veterans event hosted by the museum on November 15th.
