CG Students Recognized For Veterans Essays

Several Council Grove Elementary School students were recently recognized for their Veterans Day essay contributions.

In the 2020 All Veterans Tribute Student Essay and Poster Contest, sponsored by the Emporia Convention and Visitors Bureau, CGES 6th grader Neenah Hestermann, daughter of Brian and Amanda Hestermann, placed first across the seven-county area for her essay. She was awarded with a certificate and a cash prize. The theme of this year’s contest was “How Veterans Have Influenced My Life.”

In a separate contest recognizing 6th grade students’ veterans essays, the Royce Benjamin Veterans Award was presented to the top three contestants in each of the two 6th grade classes.
