Recipient's comments: "The essay was an assignment in my English class. I was happy when I got a letter from the county telling me I won. I wrote about how kids today get false heroes and how their heroes should really be ordinary people who help )) others or athletes who don't have their goals mixed up. I wrote out some notes by hand, then turned them into an essay on our computer."
