The 33rd Annual Peace Essay Contest is now accepting entries through Nov. 22, 2019. This year’s theme: “Heroes of Peace.”
Participation last year was high. It drew entries from 713 students, representing 37 schools and 47 teachers in Stanislaus County. Every student was recognized with a certificate of participation. All 80 finalists and school winners received a locally designed and printed T-shirt. Place winners and honorable mentions in each division received cash prizes that were made possible through the generosity of local community members.
