BURLINGTON, Vermont — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is holding his fourth annual State of Union essay-writing contest for Vermont high school students.
Sanders is asking students to write an essay of 250 to 500 words about their view of the state of the union as the president prepares for his State of the Union address to Congress in January.
The deadline for submissions is noon on Jan. 10, 2014.
Sanders will visit the winner's school to hold a student town meeting to discuss the state of the union and the future of the country. The finalists' essays will be entered in the Congressional Record and posted on Sanders' website.
