|Youth Night 2010|
This year, in honor of the 375th anniversary of Exeter's founding, the theme is "Exeter's Momentous Occasions". We ask that in their essays, the students examine an event that is important in Exeter's history and explain its significance in creating the community. The deadline for submission is Saturday, March 23, 2013, by noon.
A panel of judges will choose one entry from each division (Middle School and High School) that best meets the criteria of outstanding achievement in format, historical accuracy, originality, and style. A $100 prize will be awarded to each winner. Also, winning papers will be read by the authors at our annual Youth Night awards ceremony on Tuesday, April 30 at 7pm. It is our hope that the Nancy Carnegie Merrill Award will foster an appreciation for our community and an interest in its past.
