Veteran’s Day Student Essay Contest – Freedom Is Not Free

Essay Contest!



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 fourth graders can write a 100 word essay on why FREEDOM IS NOT FREE due by November 8th for judging. Fifth through eighth graders are encouraged write a 150 word essay on the same topic and submit it by midnight on November 8th for judging. High school students may write a 250 word essay considering the same topic and submit it by noon on November 9th for judging. Prizes for first and second place will be awarded at the Salute to Veterans event hosted by the museum on November 11th.
