Silver Pen Winners 2024

Marsh’s Edge Announces Essay Winners

Marsh’s Edge is proud to announce the winners of the 2024 Silver Pen Competition. On April 25th 2024, Marsh’s Edge 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:

If a teacher gave you the opportunity to introduce a new subject to be taught for the rest of the school year, what would be your choice for the subject? Support your choice and show how you would persuade your classmates to vote for it.

Marsh’s Edge Members who made up the judging panel selected the essay topic. 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 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.
