24 FEB - JROTC Essays, Cadet Command Essay Contest are due to MAJ Combs and SFC Gibbs

The JROTC Essay Contest is an annual competition designed to give Cadets an opportunity to assimilate lessons learned from JROTC curriculum and communicate their knowledge in writing.  Participating in the essay contest exposes Cadets to a key component of 21st Century Education: writing.  Writing in accordance with national standards outlined in the Common Core State Standards help Cadets prepare for college and careers.  The essay contest is one way the JROTC Directorate extends its effort to motivate young people to be better citizens. 

 
All Cadets enrolled in JROTC are encouraged to participate in the essay contest.  Cadet’s essay will be their own work.  Instructors will evaluate Cadets’ essay using the rubric in Annex A and select one essay to submit to their Brigade.  The Brigades will select the best essay and submit it to the JROTC Directorate.  The JROTC Directorate will select one winner from each Brigade.  The length of the essays will be 2-3 pages, excluding cover page.
