However, contestants are not required to use the suggested titles .'but may formulate one of their own. "The essay contest," he continued, "will be limited to 1500 words' and all high ^school students in such grades as 9, 10 11, and 12 are eligible to compete. The state has. been divided into seven districts, and the essay contest is to be conducted on a state winner basis, be-' ginning at the county level, to the, district level, then to the state." • 5600 in Cash Prizes. ^ As an inducement for students to enter the -contest, Mr. Lauritzen added that the Development Commission is offering fifteen cash prizes, totalling $600. There arc to be seven district first prizes of. $35 each, seven district second prizes of $15 each and one state prize of $250, for the best overall, essay selected by the judges.
