PROVO – Students have until March 21 to submit essays or videos relating to Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address to KBYU’s Channel 11.
The contest is built around the theme, “Learn the Address,” and students in seventh through twelfth grades qualify to enter.
Each student can submit one essay and one video only, to be considered in the contest. The entries should show how to “live” the Gettysburg Address after learning it.
Individual prizes will be awarded and the winner of the grand prize will be treated to an assembly at his school with American Ride’s Stan Ellsworth and the cast of Studio C.
Winners will also be invited to present their essays or videos at the public screening of The Address, a documentary by Ken Burns, on April 15 at 9 a.m.
