Wellmore of Lexington Announces Essay Winners

Wellmore of Lexington is proud to announce the winners of the 2024 Silver Pen Competition. On April 17th, 2024, Wellmore hosted the three winners and their friends and families for an awards dinner. There, they were presented with $3,750 cash prizes. The essay topic for 2024 was as follows:

You and your peers will soon be entering a university, trade school, or career. Do you feel that a university or life experiences best prepare you for life? Why do you feel that way?

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.
