AUGUSTA – Kiley Eckstein of Garland is among the first place winners of the 2017 Maine Constitution Essay and Poster Contest. The annual competition allows Maine students from grades K through 12 to submit essays regarding the Maine Constitution, voting and democracy. Younger students create posters that reflect Maine history or symbols.
The theme for grades 9-12 this year was “The Importance of Voting and Democracy.” Eckstein, a senior in William Prest’s class at Highview Christian Academy in Charleston, took first place for her essay titled “What Difference Does It Make?”
Here she is pictured with State Senator Paul Davis (R-Piscataquis) and Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap on May 18.
