WMC Foundation seeks student essays on local businesses helping to fight COVID-19

The Brillion News

MADISON – Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC) announced, through its affiliate WMC Foundation, a new essay contest to highlight how businesses in their local communities are helping during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This contest is made possible due to the generous support of Georgia-Pacific.

WMC has heard of local businesses stepping up to help their community through the pandemic by changing the products they manufacture, adding production lines to increase output or donating excess supplies of gear that our health care workers need.

WMC Foundation is challenging middle and high school students from around Wisconsin to write an essay on the importance of business in their communities and the way they’re seeing companies in Wisconsin respond to this pandemic.

Three $500 cash prizes will be awarded to the top high school essays, and four $250 cash prizes will be awarded to the top middle school essays.
