If a teacher gave you an opportunity to introduce a new subject to be taught for the rest of the rest of the school year, what would be your choice for the subject?

Evergreen Woods Members who made up the judging panel selected the essay topic. The Silver Pen Writing Competition is an essay competition that Evergreen Woods’s parent company, The Maxwell Group, started in 2012 to bridge the communication gap between high school seniors and community Members. Each participant submitted a written essay with a minimum of 1,000 words. Over the last ten years, they have awarded over $442,250 to high school seniors to help them with tuition costs.
