Sponsored by the Civil Rights Commission of Bloomfield Township
“What is your dream for America?”
The Civil Rights Commission of Bloomfield Township invited 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students to participate in our annual essay competition. This year, our goal of the essay contest was to inspire students to explore notions of freedom, justice, and human and civil rights by answering the question, “What is your dream for America?”
This year, the Commission received 43 of 50 submissions for our 2022 essay contest. All of the essays were from 6 grade students in either Brookdale, Oakview, Carteret or Berkeley. The Commission celebrates Bloomfield teachers’ efforts to use this competition as a teaching tool to engage students around the concepts of freedom, justice, and human rights.
