The Indiana Statehouse Tour Office is sponsoring an essay competition in conjunction with "Indiana Statehood Day," a celebration of Indiana's 194th birthday. Winners will be honored at the Statehood Day Celebration taking place on Friday, December 10, 2010, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. at the Indiana Statehouse.
I encourage all fourth graders in our community to enter this contest. It is a wonderful way for students to display their knowledge and talent, and be recognized for it.
. The competition is open to any Indiana 4th grade public, private or homeschooled student.
. Essays need to range from 100 to 400 words, handwritten or typed.
. Essays must include student's name, teacher's name, and the school's name, address and telephone number. Please make sure the school name is on every essay.
. Essays should convey what living in the state of Indiana means to the student. What are the things that make the student glad that he or she is a Hoosier?
. Essays must be received or postmarked October 25, 2010.
. Judges will choose first, second, and third place winners.
. Winners will be notified on or before November 24, 2010.

The first place winner will be invited to read his or her essay at the December 10th ceremony. I hope to see a fourth grader from our community present their essay at the Statehouse on that day!
