2012 Essay Contest Results

The Michigan Remembers 9-11 Fund is pleased to announce the winners of its 2012 scholarship essay contest for Michigan high school juniors and seniors. The contest is aimed to encourage Michigan youth to research and express their reflections on how the  impacts of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks affected them personally, their family members or friends, their communities, or the nation as a whole.

This year we were happy to award educational scholarships to three seniors from Williamston High School.

Carter Bastien has won the first place scholarship of $500.00 for his essay that reflected on his experience attending school as a second grader on the day of the attacks and how its aftermath affected him. He plans to attend Michigan State University in the fall.

The second place scholarship was awarded to Alivia Larkin for her essay “Never Forgotten.” She plans to attend the University of  Michigan and major in biology.

Georgia Gregoricka of Owosso won the honorable mention award for her essay “America’s Tragedy: 9-11.” She plans to attend the University of Alabama.
