Tennessee DKG Essay Contest
Tennessee State Organization State Projects Committee is charged with promoting literacy. For thirty-six years, the committee has hosted an annual High School Essay Contest.
The year 2020 marked the first year middle school-aged students were included. The 2021 Essay Contest is open to Tennessee middle school and high school students, public and private, grades 6 – 12.
The 2021 topic is of particular interest to all or us as we have been living in an increasingly virtual world. Schools, churches, conventions, and even family gatherings have all been moved online due to Covid 19.
The 2021 topic is:
Is internet access a necessity of modern life, like running water or electricity, or is it a bonus, something that is nice to have but not a requirement?
