WTOC Celebration of America Essay Contest

We asked middle school students to tell us in 100 words or less which great American in history did they most admire and why.

More than 250 students wrote in to WTOC and over four weeks, we announced our essay contest winners.

Essay winners read their essays on THE News plus they got a WTOC Celebration of America T-shirt.
