The Pennsylvania Society's Benjamin Franklin Scholar Award invites Pennsylvania public school juniors to submit an original essay discussing the modern-day relevance of a Benjamin Franklin quote.
Essays are judged blindly by educators across the Commonwealth in two rounds of judging. Winners names and locations are not revealed until the results are final.
For the first time, all three winners came from the same high school. Congratulations Avonworth!
