We all know men and women who have served in the military. They are people we look up to and respect for the sacrifices they have made in serving our Country, as well as for the courage they demonstrate on and off the battlefield. The City of Oakley invites you to enter our essay contest to tell us about your Military Hero.
Students in kindergarten through 12th grade may submit a drawing or essay celebrating a member of the military whom they admire. Prizes will be given in the age categories of elementary, middle, and high school. The winners will be asked to read their essays at the City’s Veterans’ Day Observance Ceremony on November 11th. Follow the link below for more information and an application. The deadline to submit your work is Friday, November 1st at 5:00 p.m.
