What makes an upright outstanding citizen in our society today? Citizens come in all different shapes and sizes. Everyone has their own way of giving back to their society, some choose to run for office and others choose to volunteer at local organizations.

So we want to know what makes a good citizen within your community. We encourage you to give examples and make this essay personal. Our Denver serious injury attorneys are looking for emotion, creativity and specific examples from current events.

The best written and most compelling essay will be chosen by our team at Denver Trial Lawyers ® and the winner will receive $1,000 to put towards their college education. The winner of the essay contest will also have their essay posted on our blog!

We are asking students to write an essay of at least 500 words about what makes a good, no GREAT, citizen within their community.

We want to encourage students to find examples and current events from citizens that are serving their community. We are looking for emotion, creativity and compelling writing. Then, we want students to look at how they give back to their community or what they are currently doing to give back to their community.
