Paschal Junior Wins Top Prize

at National Essay Contest


FORT WORTH -- Paschal High School junior Elizabeth Anderson won first prize in the 2013 Ayn Rand Institute's national essay contest. The $2,000 cash prize was awarded for her essay on the Rand novel "Anthem." The contest was open to 8th, 9th and 10th graders, and Anderson wrote her essay last spring as a 10th grader.


"This was the first essay contest I've ever entered," said Anderson. "I feel extremely lucky to have won." She wrote the essay a few weeks before the March deadline, then rewrote the rough draft and sent it in.


Anderson says that "Anthem was a great read; it was short but very thought-provoking and meaningful." She doesn't consider it to be one of her favorite books, but says she learned a lot by reading it. "I can't really say that Ayn Rand is one of my favorite authors since I don't completely agree with her objectivism philosophy," says Anderson, although she agrees with Rand's views on economics and government. Anderson plans to enter other Rand Institute essay contests in 2014 on the novels "We The Living" and "The Fountainhead." Each contest explores a different Rand novel and is open to specific grade levels, ranging from 8th grade through college.

Anderson's favorite current subjects are Physics, American History and English. In fact, she won the English III award at Paschal last May. She has been a member of the Paschal swim team since her freshman year, and has played hand bells in the Dorothy Shaw Bell Choir in Fort Worth for the past six years, traveling nationally and internationally with the student group.

She plans to apply to Hillsdale College in Michigan, and is considering majoring in Physics, Political Science or Journalism. In the meantime, she'll continue reading Rand novels and trying for future scholarship money.
