A freshman at Washington CH High School is the winner of the school district's annual “Write in Red” essay contest.
The contest is held yearly in conjunction with Red Ribbon Week, an in-school campaign brought to students by the drug prevention program, National Red Ribbon Campaign.
This year’s “Write in Red” essay contest winner is Washington 9th grader, Analese Mitson. Mitson was presented with a $100 scholarship as well as a Certificate of Achievement.
In addition to her school-wide accolades, her essay will now compete against other area schools’ Red Ribbon Week essay winners.
