Attention Readers: We need your votes to select winners of the It Can Wait Campaign

SH0118_Y16_Comp.inddVALLEY VIEW – The Citizen-Standard has once again partnered with The Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association, the PNA Foundation and AT&T in a statewide “It Can Wait” editorial contest to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving.

This year The Citizen-Standard has decided to change it up a bit on how the winner of the essay contest will be determined. In past years, a panel of judges read the essays and selected the winners. This year, you, the readers, are going to decide who wrote the best essay. That’s right, we need your votes.

We invited all students from the seven local school districts in The Citizen-Standard’s coverage area to participate. We had submissions sent to us from Tri-Valley High School and Upper Dauphin Area High School.

The topic of the essay was “Why is it important to take the It Can Wait Pledge that distract- ed driving is never okay?” The essays should be judged on creativity and originality; persuasiveness; grammar and spelling, understanding of subject matter and relevancy of response to topic question.

You the reader, will have the opportunity to read the essays as printed on this page and the two after this and cast your vote by emailing and placing It Can Wait Vote in the subject line. Readers are also encouraged to stop in at The Citizen-Standard office at 104 W. Main Street, Valley View, to also cast a vote. Votes may also be mailed to The Citizen-Standard, PO Box 147, Valley View, PA 17983 Attn: It Can Wait Vote.

All votes must be received by Friday, Jan. 25 in order to be counted. The two essay writers with the most votes will be selected as winners of $50 cash prizes each. The ultimate writer with the most votes will have their essay submitted to the state contest. The statewide winner will receive a $500 cash prize and be recognized at America East during a Student Keystone Press Award Luncheon.

The Local winners will be published in the January 31 edition of The Citizen-Standard.
