UCP Attitudes Essay Contest

Posted On Behalf of Schmidt Kramer Injury Lawyers on May 17, 2012 in News


Posted on May 17, 2012

Schmidt Kramer sponsors UCP Central PA/Schmidt Kramer Attitudes Essay Contest each year. This year, nearly 400 students from 21 schools throughout Central Pennsylvania participated in the contest.

The purpose of the contest is to have students think and write about the positive abilities and potential barriers that exist between people with and without disabilities. These students illustrate amazing insight and understanding about disabilities and the barriers people with disabilities face.
Some Schmidt Kramer staff, along with UCP staff, parents, and volunteers, take time to read the essays and judge the top three winners in each age category. The top three winners in each age category receive cash awards.

This year’s winners were:
