On Friday, March 17, students, parents, and notable Lexington town members gathered to celebrate one thing: the winning words of students in Lexington’s “My Truth is…” essay contest.

After a quick reception and a short speech from Deepika Sawhney, the event’s organizer, town members presented students with awards for innovative, personal essays expressing their perspective on life in the Lexington community.

Through the celebrations, we hope the “My Truth is…” contest inspires more people, especially young people, to write and share their stories with the world. 

We are grateful to all the students and families for participating and also to the Lexington Historical Society for the beautiful venue for the award ceremony. A list of the award winners can be found here (https://www.mytruthis.org/home/awards)
