The Ackerman Youth Essay Contest deadline is approaching and I have been asked to remind the youth in our region to please enter. There are two $100 awards (to a junior youth winner and to a senior youth winner) given by the AIS Foundation. Region 21 usually has several youth enter, but so far this year, they have not received entries from Region 21. It looks like the contest is wide open, and I really think our youth have a very good chance to win one or both of those awards this year. The kids have about 3 weeks to get their entries in to Carol Warner ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) before the end of the month. If there are AIS youth members in your clubs, in your household, or that you know about, please remind them to enter.
Just a reminder, the topic is: “If you were an iris, which one would you be and why?” and the deadline this year is March 31st.
