Judging was difficult due to the high quality of essays submitted. Many thanks to all who participated or contributed toward the awards. All monies go toward the winners’–who are all high school seniors–college expenses.

Best wishes to our winners!

——

Each year the RCGSA raises money to award to three local high school seniors bound for college who submit the best essays in response to the club’s challenge question. The club distributes the year’s essay question–one of civic or political importance–to St. Augustine-area high schools as well as home schoolers.
