A BIG congratulations to Jackson Maiocco! Over 600 essays were submitted to the Bernie Sanders State of the Union Essay Contest and Jackson won 2nd place! Senator Sanders invited Vermont high schoolers to write an essay about an issue in our country that they are passionate about and propose possible solutions to help solve the problem. Jackson’s essay was about excessive military spending.
Jackson has been invited to attend a round table discussion with Senator Sanders and the 20 finalists. And, because he won 2nd place, he is also invited to a personal interview with Senator Sanders to be broadcast on WCAX.
