Saturday, February 12th, a luncheon was held at Red Prairie Steakhouse in Woodward to honor 7th and 8th grade student winners from Arnett and Shattuck for their essays. The winners were awarded certificates and the following prize money by Mrs. Toni Burgess, Delta Kappa Gamma Psi Chapter, President and Essay Project Chair. Both 1st place winners received $40, 2nd place winners $30, 3rd place winners $20, and Honorable Mention winners $10. This year’s theme was about “kindness” and each student winner in attendance was asked to read their essay aloud to Psi Chapter’s members, teachers, parents, grandparents, and other guests. Approximately forty were present; and, each student’s lunch plus two of their guests’ lunches as well as their teacher’s lunches were paid for by Psi Chapter.
Both 1st place winners were entered in the DKG State Organization’s essay contest. Miss Tayzlee Bullard of Shattuck, daughter of Tyson and Micah Bullard, was the 8th grade’s first place winner; and, Miss Bristen Robertson of Arnett, daughter of Jason and Shelli Robertson, was the 7th grade’s first place winner. They will both be notified by April 15th if their essays have been chosen as state winners. If chosen, they will be invited to attend the DKG Oklahoma State Organization Conference in June to he held at Embassy Suites on South Meridian in Oklahoma City.
