April 12-19 is Fight Childhood Hunger Week.
By Nicole Allerdings
Courtney Tudor wrote an essay about why it is important to end childhood hunger in America. She submitted her essay to the first annual Fight Childhood Hunger essay contest, designed to encourage students in grades 6-8 to learn about and reflect on the issue of childhood hunger in their state, region or local community. The contest was created by “No Kid Hungry of Montana,” an organization committed to fighting childhood hunger in Montana. The essay had to be 400-600 words in length. Courtney’s essay was selected by a panel of judges as the third place winner of the statewide competition. She will receive a personal note from First Lady Lisa Bullock and an Award Certificate. These essays will be used in the First Lady’s promotion of “Fight Childhood Hunger in Montana Week”. Congratulations, Courtney!
