The Revere Veteran’s Committee is sponsoring an essay contest for Revere Public School students in grades 6, 7 and 8.
The subject is ‘Why I say Thanks to a Veteran,’ and two winning essays will be read at the Nov. 10th Veteran’s Day Services. Essays must not be fewer than 50 words or more than 125 words.
In addition, all entries will be put in a drawing to win a Curt Schilling baseball jersey or a pair of Red Sox tickets for this summer. All entries must be submitted with an official tear sheet and the drawing will be on May 4 at 3 p.m. in the Journal offices.
The top two essays, decided by the committee, will receive $100 savings bonds. Entries must be submitted no later than April 27 at 4 p.m. to The Revere Veterans Committee; c/o The Revere Journal; 385 Broadway; Revere, MA 02151.
The contest is sponsored by the Committee (A.J. Terminiello Jr. and Ira Novoselsky, co chairs), Mickey ‘Say No to Drugs’ Casoli, Citizens Bank and Dan Rizzo.
