Have you ever made a life changing action that has had a positive effect on you or the lives of other? What was it and how can others lead by that example?

Wellmore Members who made up the judging panel selected the essay topic. 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 community Members. Each participant submitted a written essay with a minimum of 1,000 words. Over the last ten years, they have awarded over $442,250 to high school seniors to help them with tuition costs.
