Marshalltown High School student Chandler Fisher is one of 100 national semifinalists in the “America the Beautiful” essay contest sponsored by Rand-McNally.
The contest invited students across the country to compose a 400-600 word essay on one question: Where’s the one place in the United States that truly inspires you? Fisher wrote about Washington, D.C., working on his composition as an independent Extended Learning Program project last spring.
As a semifinalist Fisher will receive a free Barnes & Noble NOOK Tablet and have his essay published in the “America the Beautiful” eBook on nook.com.
