Gwinnett Daily Post

Advaith and Anjali Narayan, twin third-graders from Woodward Mill Elementary School, were among the winners of Delta Community Credit Union’s 2024 Youth Essay Contest.

There were 21 winners selected from more than 170 entries. Each of the winning essayists will receive a $100 Delta Community Youth Savings Account.

The contest was open to third-, fourth- and fifth-graders across metro Atlanta, and seven winners from each grade level were selected. Students were asked to write an essay about what they would do to make an impact at their school if they had unlimited money.

Many of the winning essays described increasing salaries for teachers and staff, offering after-school programs, providing healthier foods and snacks and buying playground equipment for students with special needs. Some unique student ideas to invest in their schools and classmates included establishing a trade school on campus, getting therapy dogs for students, and creating a community garden to help fight hunger.

Delta Community launched the contest in 2016 to recognize the importance of youth financial education and invest in future generations.
