  • Allendale All In Student Essay Contest

    If you are in grades 6-12, love writing about your experiences, and would like a chance to win cash or prizes, then this essay is a great opportunity for you. We want to know if you, or someone you’ve seen, has shown what being “ALLENDALE. ALL IN!” means to you. Maybe you are involved in helping hand out food to local families that are in need? Maybe you purposefully take extra paddles and balls when you play Pickle Ball at the Township Park? Maybe you hope to see more of your peers take time to visit the local nursing homes during the holidays when residents feel the loneliest? Whatever it is that you do to make Allendale or surrounding areas a better place to live, work and play here’s your chance to share it with others.

    Essays are Due September 30, 2021, and are for 6-12 grade only. Essays must be a minimum of 2 paragraphs and a maximum of 2 pages.

    Winners of the 3rd place, 2nd place, and Grand Prize will be announced on October 13, 2021, on Allendale Chamber’s social media. 1-3rd place winners will receive a certificate. All participants are eligible for consolation prizes.
