Today’s high school students don’t remember seeing images of people jumping out of the Twin Towers or flames shooting from the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.
That’s not lost on Palm Beach County first responders and supporters. The Palm Beach Gardens Police Foundation, Fire Chiefs’ Association of Palm Beach County and Palm Beach Gardens Fire-Rescue are sponsoring a September 11th Remembrance Essay Contest for the second year.
The contest asks students in grades nine to 12 to “reflect on how the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 affected our nation and the future of the world.” It’s open to residents of Palm Beach Gardens and dependents of city employees. The 500-700 word essay is due Aug. 15.
The application is available at http://pbgpf.org/911essay/2016_contest_application.pdf.
