The Glenview Village Board of Trustees on April 6 will recognize winners of the 20th annual CHARACTER COUNTS! in Glenview Essay Contest.
Students were asked to write an essay on one of two topics:
- Develop an essay about a person who thought of an idea to improve his/her community, country or the world. Reflect upon the role of citizenship in this person’s life and the change(s) he/she made.
- Develop an essay about responsibility, focusing on your own responsibilities in any area of your life. Which of your responsibilities do you find the hardest to accomplish? What could you do to be more successful?
More than 1,200 entries were received from 10 schools.
The winners will be presented with awards provided by Glenview Bank & Trust, Northview Bank & Trust and Glenview Optimists.
