Since 1956, the Pine Castle Woman’s Club has proudly sponsored the Fifth Grade Essay Contest for schools in the Central Florida area.
The 2021-2022 topic was: “Traits of a Good Citizen” with students from Blankner Elementary School, Cornerstone Charter Academy, Lancaster Elementary School, Pershing Elementary School, Pine Castle Christian Academy, and Winegard Elementary participating.
After the essays are returned, the committee members then have the opportunity to read the students essays and determine the winners.
Categories range from first place winner ($100), second place winner ($75), third place winner ($50) and merit award winners ($25).
Because of COVID, we were unable to host our Awards luncheon event in April with the School Principals, Teachers, Parents and Students.
Committee members delivered the certificates and awards to the students at their participating school.
