2017 Eugene England Memorial Personal Essay Contest Winners

This has been an especially fruitful year for the England Personal Essay Contest. Normally the judges give out 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes, but this year they gave out three 1st places and three honorable mentions. It’s the first time in the history of the contest that six prizes have been given out. Congratulations to the winners!
