DIRECTIONS: This essay project is open to all teens from the ages of 13 – 17

You may select a veteran who has served in WWII or any preceding period all the way through the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The veteran might be a member of your family or a person you have known growing up, as long as you admire them for inspiring you or they exhibited the ability to be a role model. If you do not have someone to write a story about the AWON, (American WWII Orphans Network) organization is available to match you with a hero to write about. Make sure you explore how that person has shown the “power of one” and has made a difference in the lives of others. The essay collection will be published in a featured book in 2010 through AuthorHouse.

Deadline for finished essays is: October 15, 2009
