Student Essay Contest
Every year the Millbrae Lions Club sponsors a Student Essay Contest during Youth Week. This year local schools, from 4th grade up through High School, received a flyer listing the Essay Contest rules, along with specific topics to write about.
Scores of essays were turned in from many different schools for the judging at Taylor Middle School. After examining each essay, 6 student authors were found to stand out among the rest.
Each student was surprised with a special phone call informing them of their winning essay, and an invitation which included their parents and teacher to attend the Youth Week Awards Dinner at Green Hills Country Club in Millbrae. This annual semi-formal event honors the winning students for not only writing an exemplary essay, but for also being exemplary themselves!
