Americanism Essay Contest For Grades 7 - 12
The FRA National Committee on Americanism-Patriotism sponsors an
annual Americanism Essay Contest, based on a theme announced each Spring.
The contest includes regional and national prizes. All regional winners are
judged at the national level and receive a certificate of recognition.
Other prizes are awarded at the branch and regional levels.
FRA's Essay Contest is open to all students grades 7 through
12 (including those who are home schooled). Each entrant must
be sponsored by an FRA member in good standing or by a currently
chartered branch or unit.
Please check back in July for the next Essay Contest theme and entry announcement.
