Four Students are Winners in the 2020 John Stossel Essay Contest

Congratulations to four students who were winners in the 2020 John Stossel Essay Contest.  Caitlin Austin was a semi-finalist and will receive $100; Lauren Cox, Madison Holt, and Laikyn Tyson all received Honorable Mention and will receive $50.  According to English teacher Stacey Vickers, having four winners from one school is very rare so this is a phenomenal accomplishment for her students.  The contest required students to write an essay about Income Inequality in America.  They used John Stossel’s video on Income Inequality, as well as other resources they researched independently, to write a 500-1000 word essay for the competition.
