After submitting the essays, a citywide contest will be held on February 23, 2023 at the Mary A. Ronan Education Center (2651 Burnet Avenue) for students to recite their essay in front of a panel of judges from memory. First, second and third place will be awarded in each division. Winners will be invited to compete in the statewide contest in Columbus in April 2023.
