The Topic for the 2018 Patsy Hamilton Memorial Essay Contest is: Which College do you want to twirl at and why?
Entry Deadline: TBD
Mail entries to: TBD
The Patsy Hamilton Memorial Competition (PHMC) is an annual baton twirling competition dedicated to the memory of Patsy. Patsy loved to write and had just renewed that love by taking some writing classes, just prior to her untimely passing at a baton competition. Thus the reasons for our essay contest each year in her honor. Patsy’s husband Bud, and daughters Cindy and Lori look forward to judging the essays each year. It is important to all members of the council to keep her memory alive. Here is a quote by Cindy, Patsy’s daughter, “Over the years it’s been wonderful to read the thoughts of competitors, ranging in age from about 5 to 17, on what life lessons the sport of baton twirling teaches. Mom was also a writer and she would be delighted about the nature of this legacy!”
