Silver Pen Winners 2023

Wellmore of Tega Cay Announces Essay Winners

The 2023 Silver Pen Competition has officially ended, and Wellmore of Tega Cay is proud to announce the winners.

Wellmore of Tega Cay invited their three winners and their friends and families to an award ceremony on May 5th, 2023. There they were presented with $3,750 cash prizes and essay topic for 2023 was as follows:

“Many people volunteer their time to help others, either through non-profit organizations, churches, or other charitable venues. Write an essay to convince others to find a charity and volunteer their time.”

Each essay topic was discussed and selected by Wellmore of Tega Cay Members who make up the judging panel.

The Silver Pen Writing Competition is an essay competition that Wellmore’s parent company, The Maxwell Group, started in 2012 to bridge the communication gap between high school seniors and their Members. Over the last ten years, they have awarded over 380,000 dollars to high school seniors to help them with the rising tuition costs. Each participant must submit a written essay with a minimum of 1,000 words.
