The 2015 Writing Contest Winner to be Honored
Cultural Society will present awards to thirty nine students from high schools
in Nassau County at its meeting on May 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Garden City
Library, across the street from the Garden City Hotel. The meeting is free and open to the public.
students won awards for their essays entered into the Society’s writing
contest. The writing project was modeled
after an assignment from the New York State English Regents Examination. Entrants were asked to write a rhetorical
analysis of a speech delivered in 1943 by President of Ireland Eamon de
Valera. Four hundred and eighty-four entries
competed for the Society’s thirty nine prizes.
At the meeting, portions of winning entries will
be read aloud. President Martin Kelly
will acknowledge the H.W. Wilson Foundation for its sponsorship of the contest,
and he will commend the teachers of the winners for their teaching skills.
