Local GOTR participant selected as a Winner of National Essay Contest!

One of our local GOTR participants, Journey, has been selected as a winner of the Secret ‘How does Girls on the Run Make You Fearless’ essay contest! Participants were asked to write a 300-word or fewer essay describing “How does Girls on the Run make you fearless?” Out of thousands of entries, only 10 were chosen as winners.  Journey will receive $500 and our Council will receive $3,500. Essays were judged based on creativity/originality (40%), inspirational value (25%) and how well the essay fits the “How does GOTR make you fearless?” theme.

Needless to say, Journey’s essay scored high in all three categories! To read her essay, click here.

Congratulations to Journey on her accomplishment and thank you for winning funds for our council! The funds will allow us to offer the program to more girls in the Puget Sound!
