JACKSONVILLE, September 4, 2012 – Scot Ackerman, MD, Medical Director of First Coast Oncology, announces this year’s topic for the Students Who Care Essay Contest. High School students from Duval and Nassau counties can enter for a chance to win a laptop in reward for their good deeds.
Every day good deeds go unnoticed and often unrewarded. This contest supports the children in our community and encourages them to make the right choices.
“I believe that children deserve assistance and encouragement when it comes to making the right choices. They also deserve reinforcement in determining a course of action to responsibly achieve their goals,” says Dr. Scot Ackerman.
One winner will be selected from each county and awarded a MacBook at a school assembly in front of their peers.
