Here is his winning essay:
Our freedoms, as listed in the first amendment, are the only bonds that hold our country together. I believe that it is more important to have the rights of speech and free expression of oneself than to have the right to have protection. If everyone was free, we wouldn’t need to fight for freedom.
Here is a little more about our winner:
I am very outgoing and enjoy working with other people. I also volunteer and will get the job done no matter what someone asks me to do for them. I also enjoy playing tennis for the Basha High School Junior Varsity Team and I am looking forward to playing for their varsity team next year. I plan on progressing in the engineering field in the future because of an engineering course I recently took and found suitable. I am a straight A student and I will try to receive an unweighted GPA of at least 4.0 for all four years in high school.
