Hamilton County Student Wins AIC Essay Contest

The Association of Indiana Counties (AIC) and Financial Solutions Group, Inc. have named a local fourth grader as the National County Government Week essay contest winner for the AIC’s East Central District.

Levi Meyer’s essay was chosen over entries from other fourth graders across the district. Meyer, a student at Cherry Tree Elementary, received $100 for winning the contest. One winner was chosen in each of the AIC’s six districts.

This year’s theme was “Celebrate your County’s History.” Essays were judged on how well students focused on a person, event or thing that is related to their county’s history.

Meyer was awarded the prize this month during the AIC Northeast District Meeting in Shelby County. The meeting also included a synopsis of the 2022 Indiana Legislative Session by AIC legislative staff.
