Silver Pen Winners 2023

Marsh’s Edge Announces Essay Winners

The 2023 Silver Pen Competition has officially ended, and Marsh’s Edge is proud to announce the winners.

Marsh’s Edge invited their three winners and their friends and families to an awards ceremony on April 25th, 2023. There they were presented with $3,750 cash prizes and essay topic for 2023 was as follows:

“Write about someone (or ones), other than your parents or relatives, who have had a tremendous influence for good in your life. In what ways have these people influenced your goals for your life.”

Each essay topic was discussed and selected by Marsh’s Edge Members who make up the judging panel.

The Silver Pen Writing Competition is an essay competition that Marsh’s Edge’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.
