Dominion Seeks Writing Contest Entries for 'Strong Men & Women' Series

CLEVELAND, -- High school juniors and seniors are invited to participate in an essay-writing contest focused on the achievements of outstanding African Americans as part of Dominion's 2009 "Strong Men & Women: Excellence in Leadership" series.

Schools in Dominion East Ohio's service territory can submit a maximum of two student entries each. Three winners will receive notebook computers and their schools will receive a $1,000 cash award. Entries must be postmarked by Nov. 9.

"The Strong Men & Women writing contest allows students to explore the lives of leaders who have achieved and excelled," said Bruce C. Klink, president of Dominion East Ohio. "We selected these leaders for one reason - to inspire and challenge our youth to succeed in any endeavor they choose and to make meaningful contributions to society."

Each year, the Strong Men & Women series recognizes African-American state and national leaders. The students will research and write a 400-word essay about the achievements of leaders who have been honored during the series' 19-year history.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony in Cleveland on February 4, 2010.

Contest guidelines, entry forms and honorees' list, are available by visiting Dominion's Web site at www.dom.com, enter keyword: "strong."
