Every year the Emden American Legion has an “Americanism” essay contest. The topic this year was, "Should U.S. Senators and Representatives have term limits?" This year many freshmen and sophomores from Hartem High submitted essays to the Emden American Legion. We then had 4 sophomores take places in the contest. Zach Phillips won 1st place for his essay, Joe Garcia followed in 2nd, and Emme Olson and Xavier Detmers tied for 3rd place. Congratulations to the 2016 Emden American Legion “Americanism” essay winners!
