Institute of Public Service Announces Inaugural Essay Competition Winners
“Know Your Power,” Delgado Tells Essay Contest Winners
Lieutenant Governor Antonio Delgado was proud of the students who submitted their essays to the Hartwick Institute of Public Service’s inaugural essay competition.
“You know your power, and it’s important to tap into that power for the benefit of your community,” he said via Zoom. “That power cannot be quashed.”
Seven students from across the HartLand Promise communities created videos and wrote essays detailing ways to get young people more involved in the democratic process.
“One of the goals is to inspire the next generation of public servants. The entries in this contest were a clear indication of how young people in the area are working towards engaging in democracy.”
