Student Essay Contest


October 31, 2007

We are currently mailing out packets about our student essay contest to teachers and administrators all over the state. We are asking 8th grade students to write a 1-2 page essay and tell us about a couple they know who have a great marriage. We want to know who they are, what makes their marriage great, and what the student has learned from them.

The essay winners will win $100, teachers of winners will win a $50 gift certificate, and the couple the student writes about will receive a $50 gift card to dinner. Winners, teachers, and couples will also be invited to attend a special celebration of marriage at the Governor’s mansion hosted by Governor Bob Riley and Mrs. Patsy Riley on February 17, 2008 during Alabama Healthy Marriage Month.
