Seniors Katherine Burckin and Samantha Morris were selected as two of 20 finalists. Jacob Ellis, a senior at RCS was selected as one of one hundred semifinalists.
This year’s Essay Topic was taken from John Stossel’s TV special and book of the same name, “No They Can’t,” where Stossel makes the case that free people and free markets do a better job of solving problems than government. The essay prompt asked students to answer a simple question: Do you think he’s right? Why or why not?
Once again, Congratulations: Chelsea, Katherine, Samantha, and Jacob. We are all proud of you!
