Winning Essays

If I were President of the United States of America, I would make good decisions to keep America free. I would go to schools to shake hands with the children, so that they would do good work and stay in school.

I would make communities better by helping poor people get work, so they can have food and shelter. I would honor and respect the American flag—I hope all Americans would feel the same way as I do.

I would go to church and pray for our country and the world. For fun, I would go to Mars and ride on the rover. I would thank the soldiers who serve our country and pray for those who have died.
God bless America.
