Next month Oklahoma high school seniors’ writing assignments are due. This time, they are not competing for a letter grade but rather for a piece of $12,000 and a chance to meet Ambassador John R. Bolton, former U.S. Representative to the United Nations.
The contest is open to all students who will graduate from an Oklahoma public, private, or home school in the spring of 2009. Entries must be between 1,000 and 1,250 words and postmarked by February 9. Winners will be selected in early March and will receive their prize at OCPA’s Citizenship Award Dinner on March 23 in Oklahoma City.
