The local lodge president will be responsible for validating the member's standing within the lodge
by initialing the essay cover page prior to submission of the essay.
Due to personal contact restrictions that have been imposed as a result of Covid-19, an email from the lodge president
to the contest chairperson, validating the members standing will be accepted in lieu of the presidents initials.

“Today I have a dream, and hope that someday, even if it takes one hundred years before we are fully accepted, our children, and their children’s children, even if they carry a single drop of Italian blood, will be able and proud to continue to carry on our traditions, our culture and our language. It is up to us, and what we do today."

These words were spoken by Dr. Vincenzo Sellaro over 100 years ago.
