2021-2022 GRAND LODGE AMERICANISM ESSAY CONTEST
“What Does It Mean to Love Your Country?”
I am pleased to announce that Members of the Grand Lodge Fraternal Committee have selected the theme, “What Does It Mean to Love Your Country” for the 2021-2022 Grand Lodge Americanism Essay Contest. The contest starts with the Local Lodges, progresses through District and State levels, and ends with the naming of our National Winners at the Grand Lodge Session in Altanta, Georgia in July 2022. This very important Patriotic Contest gives school children in grades 5-8 the opportunity to express views on their pride in America.
Nationally, first-place, second-place and third-place winners in each division will receive bronze plaques. Many Lodges, Districts and State Associations also may offer different types of awards to their winners.
