The Davis Constitution Essay Contest selection panel has announced the winners of its contest, which organizers hope to make an annual event. In the elementary school category, Nicole Woolley won first prize. At the junior high level, Gabriel Bick’s essay was chosen as the top contender. Sasha Harrison-Gunzelman took first place in the high school category and Jackie Kinney’s essay came in first in the overall adult category.

Entrants ranged in age from 9 to 86. Fifty percent of the essays received were in the elementary age category. In the three school categories, individual submissions came from Davis public schools, St. James School and home schoolers. Overall, more than 75 percent of those who submitted essays were girls or women.

The sponsors of the essay contest were The Avid Reader, The Davis Enterprise and “We the People of Davis,” a Davis group dedicated to knowledge about the U.S. Constitution and American history.

The winners’ essays will be featured in The Davis Enterprise in the coming week. On Tuesday, Sept. 24, the winners will be recognized at the Davis City Council meeting and congratulated at a reception thereafter, beginning at 7:30 p.m. at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. Those attending the reception will have the opportunity hear the winners read their essays. The public is invited.

All four winners will receive a first-place medal and $100 in prize money.

In addition to the essay contest, other activities related to the Constitution took place in Davis in the week leading up to the 226th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution on Sept. 17. Farmers Market visitors had a chance to test their knowledge in a Constitution facts contest that drew scores of participants.

The Avid Reader also featured a discussion of the book “The Roberts Court” and a presentation on the 4th Amendment by McGeorge Professor John Sims.
