Sayre Rotary has announced the winners of this year’s Rotary essay contest from Sayre High School and honored them recently at their weekly luncheon.
The first place winner was Heidi Elston, the second place winner was Emily Sutryk, and the third place winner was Annabelle Ennis.
Each of the winners read their essays to the Rotary Club members and were presented with their monetary prizes after enjoying lunch with their families at the Grill at the Station, Sayre.
This year’s theme, which was open to 11th grade students, was “Be the Inspiration” – the theme of Rotary International for the year 2018-19. The essay was to describe how someone has inspired the writer, or how the writer has inspired others, or how the writer thinks others can be inspired in the future.
Heidi Elston’s first place winning essay will be submitted to the Rotary International District 7410 Essay Contest for judging, where monetary prizes will be awarded for the first, second, and third place winners.
Mike Frantz of the Sayre High School has been instrumental in organizing this essay contest this year and for many years in the past and Sayre Rotary would like to express their gratitude.
Anyone interesting in learning more about Rotary is welcome to attend the weekly luncheon held every Tuesday, at 12:10 p.m. at the Grille at the Station.
