GRT 2013 Student Essay Contest

| No Comments
The Rotary Club of Greenwich will sponsor an essay contest for students attending Greenwich public and independent schools in grades 6-12. Two cash prizes of $250 will be awarded at a Greenwich Reads Together event in two categories (6-8th grades and 9-12th grades). 

The 2013 GRT Essay Question is: How does your reading of When the Emperor was Divine (or Eyes of the Emperor) affect your thinking about prejudice toward immigrants and other minorities in the United States today? In your response, you may want to consider other historical moments of scapegoating. 

Essays will be evaluated for clarity of expression, persuasiveness, and originality. Essays must be double-spaced, 1,000 words or less (exclusive of any citations), and submitted as a Word Document via e-mail on or before Wednesday, April 24 to For full details, please click here

Greenwich Reads Together is a community-wide reading experience which will engage all of Greenwich in exploring a single book. Several community organizations are leading this initiative including Greenwich Library, Greenwich Arts Council, Greenwich Historical Society, Greenwich Alliance for Education, Greenwich Pen Women, Greenwich Public Schools and private schools and Friends of Greenwich Library. Last spring, almost 20 community organizations and more than 3,000 Greenwich residents participated in events. Numerous adult, children and teen book discussions were held across Greenwich.
