Bobby Donathan, left, won the Newcomerstown Elks
Americanism Essay Contest.
Fifth grader wins
NEWCOMERSTOWN - A fi fth grade Newcomerstown stu-
dent will compete with other district winners across the
state in the Elks Americanism Essay Contest.
Eleven year old Bobby Donathan's essay about "What
Makes Me Proud of America," was chosen as the overall
winner out of the entire Southeast-Ohio Region. Steven
Pritchard, exhaled ruler with Newcomerstown Elks, rec-
ognized him recently at West Elementary School with
his certifi cate and monetary award.
Donathan wrote about the “great military,” and said,
“Our military has paved the way for Americans to be
free to live their lives and seek their dreams.” He said his
father Doyle is a veteran Navy pilot, and that is why he
chose to enter the contest.
Mother Laurie says for Bobby to achieve the goal is
remarkable, by overcoming his adversity of dyslexia
to write the essay, and attending public school only a
little more than two years after formerly being home-
schooled. She says he’s exceeding and is reading in ways
she never thought possible.
Elks essay Chair Paulla Emery hopes more students
will take advantage of the opportunity by competing
in next year's contest, and looks to make essay subject-
matter attractive to youth to apply.
Pritchard said Bobby's essay will be judged against
other Ohio district winners in April for a chance to win
the National Americanism essay title and travel to the
Annual Elks National Convention.
