FRA Essay Contest

The Fleet Reserve Association (FRA), a national organization whose members include active and retired Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard personnel, sponsors an Americanism Essay Contest each year. The contest is open to all students in grades 7 through 12, including students who are home schooled. Home schooled students were not well represented in last years contest and you can help remedy that by getting information out to members of your organization. The deadline for submitting essays is December 1, 2005. So, please contact me right away so that I can mail the info to you. Sorry that I can't send it via e-mail.

The theme for this year is "What My Vote Will Mean To Me". The maximum number of words is 350. There will be local, regional, and national prizes, with the Grand Prize being a $15,000 Savings Bond.

I am a member of the Atlanta Branch 89 of the FRA. My branch will sponsor any essays that students of your organization wish to submit.

You may contact me by replying to this e-mail, or call me at 770 883-0134 (cell), or 706 246-9557(home).

To learn more about the Essay Contest, access the FRA Web Page at www.fra.org. Click on the tab in the upper left corner, "About The FRA", then click on the words "Essay Contest" in the left margin. There you can download the rules as well as the required cover sheet.

This is a great opportunity and I hope that you will contact me right away.

Thank you, and God Bless,

Wayne Barron
