Lockwood’s 8th Grade Language Arts students participated in the annual VFW essay contest. These students competed with all 7th and 8th grade students in the Heights and Lockwood areas. This years prompt was “America’s Gift to my Generation”. The students were required to write about a gift that America has given to their generation. The essay could not be longer that 300 words. For the local VFW post Lockwood came out on top; Colton Cain, took first place with his essay about the “advancements and evolutions of our people to cater to everyone’s needs, everyone’s wants, and everyone’s rights”, and Dylan Winters, took third place with his essay about “freedom of speech”and other First Amendment rights. Each boy received a medal, a plaque, and a check. The first place essay will be advanced to the next level.
