Dear Illustrious Sirs and Nobles,

There were many interesting and inspirational essays submitted and the final decision was difficult. Congratulations to the following Shriners on their award winning essays:

The winners will all receive plaques, pins and Amazon gift cards for their achievement. Excerpts of the winning essays are posted onwww.shrinersvillage.com and www.shrinersinternational.org. The full version of the essays will be featured in the 2012-2013 Annual Report and a new book which will be available at Imperial Session and starting on June 30 for a donation to Shriners Hospitals for Children®. They will also be recognized during the Public Relations Report at Imperial Session on July 3, 2013 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The temples of the winning essay writers will also receive a plaque acknowledging the winner and their temple.
We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to all of you who took the time to reflect upon your life as a Shriner by writing an essay. By doing so, you are helping to preserve the rich history of our fraternity.
