Students competed in three patriotic categories.
For the second year, Read2Me partnered with the Rotary Club of Franklin to host a county-wide writing contest. This year's patriotic theme was broken up into three different categories. Students were able to participate in either the “Greatest President” or “If I were President” essay writing or the “When I am President” poetry writing categories. Winners were selected based on grade level, writing quality, content, and creativity. Members of the Franklin Rotary Club judged the essays.
All first place winners received $50 for their submissions, and the first place winner's classroom teacher also received $50 to go toward purchasing classroom supplies. All second place winners and their teachers each received a $25 prize.
