What a great opportunity for our children and schools to embrace learning about various aspects of our government and of our Country! Kudos to The Exchange Club for making this opportunity available to our school children year after year.

It was a very good experience. It lets you express your writing freely. Its good that it is open to all in school.

Happy writing!

Kudos to the students for their insightful essays. The comments are inane and totally out of context!
