Three 8th grade students at Eagle Ridge Middle School earned awards in the Patriot's Pen essay contest sponsored by Burnsville VFW Post 5833 recently.
Students in the community in grades 6-8 were invited to submit essays related to the theme of “America’s Gift to My Generation.” Members of the Post evaluated the entries and selected three winners, said Bob Hansen, commander of Burnsville VFW Post 5833.
All three winners are students at Eagle Ridge Middle School:
Victoria Biggs, Vista View Elementary (Kathy Silvers, teacher)
ZamZam Hussein, Gideon Pond Elementary (Alexis Campbell, teacher)
