2012 Student Essay & Video Contests
Speak Out, Do the Right Thing & Make a Difference!
Let your Voice Be Heard
Initiated in 2002, the annual Essay Contest has become a cornerstone of the Memorial's educational programs. In 2005, the Essay Contest expanded from a state contest to a national one, allowing more students to use this contest as a vehicle for sharing their rich perspective and engaging in the lessons of the Memorial.
This year, in addition to our annual essay contest, we are introducing a video contest. Students will be able to choose whether to express their thoughts about speaking up against violence, doing the right thing and making a difference, through the written word or through visual means. Winning essays and videos will be placed on the Memorial’s website. Students in grades 5-12 may participate and are eligible to win cash prizes.

Allegiance is proud to sponsor the essay & video contest again this year. It means so much to see these young people learning from what happened to us in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995. We were impressed by the perspective that these young people have and the lessons they have already learned in their own lives.
