Entries are due May 15. The ten finalists will be announced on Memorial Day, May 26. A panel of judges - to be named in the coming weeks - will select the winning essay and runner-up, which will be announced on June 13, in anticipation of Flag Day. The winner will then be invited to attend an official event of the 2008 Republican National Convention, along with their immediate family, and lead attendees in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Congratulations and well done to all the winners. Looking forward to reading the essays and the recap post.
