The Americanism Committee of the Frankfort Elks Lodge #530 is sponsoring an essay contest for Franklin County students in grades 5 through 8. The theme of this year’s contest is “What Makes You Proud of America?” The contest has two separate divisions: one for grades 5 and 6, and one for grades 7 and 8.

The local lodge will judge the submissions it receives from all the schools in Franklin County and send three winners in each division on to the district level of judging. These three winners in each division will receive a prize from the Frankfort Elks. Below you will find download links for the cover sheets for the contest along with the rules for the contest. You may make extra copies if needed. The submission deadline for this essay contest is December 15, 2018. Essays should be submitted to the lodge at the following address:
