Paige Edmiston wins The True Patriot national essay contest
Paige Edmiston, a senior at Federal Way High School, is the winner of The True Patriot national essay contest and $25,000 college scholarship.
The True Patriot authors Nick Hanauer and Eric Liu challenged American high school students to write the strongest essay answering the question, “What does true patriotism mean to you?”
Edmiston’s essay,“A New Breed of Superhero for the 21st Century,” emerged as the winner among thousands of essays submitted by students across the nation. U.S. Congressman Adam Smith (District 9) joined Hanauer and Liu in awarding the prize April 10 at a school assembly at Federal Way High School.
