High School Essay Contest


The Churchill Society of New Orleans sponsors a yearly essay contest for the purpose of encouraging young people to learn more about the great man, and thereby to absorb some of his wisdom, his courage, and his masterful use of the English language. 24 essays were submitted in the 2018-19 Essay Contest, from students at 5 high schools. Although no further entries are allowed, the following material demonstrates how the contest works. For the next school year there will be a new topic, which will be announced this fall.
