Enter the 'My Exceptional City' essay contest

September 30, 2016

The City of Johns Creek wants to know what you believe makes our city exceptional!

We invite all middle school students, grades 6-8, in the city of Johns Creek area schools to submit a one-page essay sharing what they believe makes Johns Creek exceptional. 

In 2015, Johns Creek adopted the tag line, “Be the Exception” to recognize the attributes that make our city exceptional.  Our schools, police and fire departments, our growing parks, and the people who make up our diverse community are just a few examples. 

Essays must be the original work of students in 6th - 8th Grade. Three (3) winners will be chosen, one from each grade, and each winner will be formally announced at the City’s 10-year Anniversary Event, November 5 at Johns Creek High School. Essays must be emailed or postmarked by October 28.
