Military Family Essay Winners

Every year Utah PTA, in partnership with Utah National Guard, holds an essay contest for Military Families. The three winning students from Elementary School, Middle School/Junior High, and High School receive a cash prize and are honored at the Utah National Guard Veteran's Day Concert in November

A Military Family is one that has a family member presently serving or who has served in the Active, Reserve or National Guard (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard). If children live with guardians or grandparents who are presently serving or who have served, they are also included. 

The theme for the essay contest is “Why I am proud of my Veteran!”

The 2018 Essay Contest Winners are:




Riley Eaton (Elementary), Laynie Allred, (Junior), Shaheen Takmili (High School)
