DCIU was the proud sponsor of our annual essay contest for Delaware County Middle School Students. We see this contest as an opportunity for students to learn about the history of this country and to honor our veterans. This year, the students were asked to interview a family member or a close family friend who has served in any branch of the US military and to write a 200-word essay on this person’s experience. The essay was scored based on adherence to the theme, creativity, and writing conventions. Below are our 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place winners:
- Our 3rd place winner is Mackenna Linksky who is an 8th grader at E.T. Richardson Middle School in the Springfield School District.
- Our 2nd place winner is Cadie Thomas. She is in the 6th grade at Springton Lake Middle School in the Rose Tree Media School District.
- Our 1st place winner is Tajkera Afifa who is an 8th grader at Beverly Hills Middle School in the Upper Darby School District.
