FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Essay Contest Announced for Students
REGIONAL – January 3, 2018 – Midwest Honor Flight's Board of Directors wants to engage more youth in our Mission: To transport America’s Veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit those memorials dedicated to honor the service and sacrifices of themselves and to fellow veterans. With this in mind, the Midwest Honor Flight Essay Contest entitled "Why Thank a Veteran" was formed as a way for youth to express the importance of this mission with their families, their communities, and to the veterans in which they will have the opportunity to meet. Students aged 16 through college are invited to apply and write for this contest.
From Aaron Van Beek, President &Director of Midwest Honor Flight, “We are excited to offer this opportunity for students in the area to show their appreciation towards the brave men and women who served during times of conflict. With this opportunity, we also want students to take the time to get to know these American Heroes so applicants are encouraged to fly with us as a Guardian - first and second place winners will go on flight.” Students age 16 through college are encouraged to learn more and apply at www.midwesthonorflight.org/essay.
