Korean MemorialKorean War & Korea Defense Service Veterans, Lake Co. (FL), Chapter 169

St. Paul Student Essay Contest

While at St. Paul's, we challenged the middle school students to write an essay addressing the following two questions:

  1. How has the Korean War affected your rights and freedoms as an American?
  2. How did the KWVA presenters today help you in your understanding of the Korean War?

We received 33 excellent essays from St. Paul's students, which members of our KWVA Tell America Team read and ranked.

Essays by Lindsey Pinder, Jessica Heroux, and Agusto Useche were selected as best addressing our challenge. But all 33 were outstanding. Thank you Agusto, Jessica and Lindsey, and the remaining thirty St. Paul students.
