Ethics & Economics Challenge Scholarship Winners Announced!
This year’s Ethics and Economics Challenge speech competition at Merrimack Valley High School, made possible by Credit Adjustments, Inc., took place on Friday evening, June 3. The students gave a series of excellent presentations, which were judged by Janine Casavant, Gardner Goldsmith, and Jason Sorens. In the end, the winners were:
- Braden S., for “Why College Vouchers Could Reduce Costs”
- Isabelle G., for “Ending Mass Incarceration”
- Madison G., for “The Benefits of Liberalizing Immigration”
Braden and Isabelle won $500 and $250 scholarships, respectively, while Madison won a $40 bookstore gift certificate. The judges’ decision among the top five or so contestants was a very difficult one!
We are grateful to Merrimack Valley H.S. for their continued support and to all our donors. It was great to hear comments from the students like, “This was my favorite class this year!” and “It’s definitely been one of the most enriching and best parts of high school.”
See you next fall!
