Student wins essay contest

A boy from Glencoe was one of a few students nationwide to be named winners of the No Kid Hungry student essay contest, put on by Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America. Kyle Frank, 15, won first place in the age 15 and older division. Students were asked to write about why ending childhood hunger is important. “Food is a valuable asset needed to secure a child's future as well as our own,” he wrote. Frank won $500 for his essay.
