E.B. Henderson Dear Editor Contest


For many years, Tinner Hill Heritage Foundation has been host to the annual legacy ‘E.B. Henderson Dear Editor Contest’ for participating local schools in Falls Church, Virginia including George Mason High School. This competition has engaged students in critical thinking regarding multicultural relations, civil rights and social justice issues from historical perspectives in consideration of current events and news stories. Every year, students submit their brief essays to the local review committee. Winners are provided public recognition and a nominal cash award in recognition for their excellence in authorship. Historically, this program was sponsored for many years by the Washington Post.
