This year we had 187 entries from 8th graders across Rhode Island, from which we selected22 finalists! These students and their families, teachers, and principals were invited to join us for our 2012 Gandhi Essay Award Ceremony on May 1st, from 5pm – 6pm at the Multicultural Center Forum at URI. At this ceremony we recognized several second and third place essay winners, and announced the overall first place essay winner, Grace Miner, who read her winning essay.
Congratulations, Grace Miner!
