Austintown Kiwanis Club holds sixth grade essay contest assembly

March 29, 2018
The Town Crier

If you had $50 to give to the local charity of your choice, which one would you choose to donate to and why?

Austintown sixth grade students were asked the same question when they were challenged to prepare an essay about their favorite charity for a contest sponsored by the Austintown Kiwanis Club. The essay contest was also sponsored by the Associated School Employees Credit Union (ASECU).

Out of 246 essays, six were selected by the committee, made up of Kiwanis and Fitch Key Club members.
