The Reed Secular Alliance is pleased to announce that club President, Leslie Zukor, won Honorable Mention in the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s annual college essay competition. Leslie was pleased to be selected as a winner, especially since this is her second try at the competition.
“I am excited about winning Honorable Mention,” Zukor explains. “There were nearly 200 applications, and I feel honored that an organization such as the FFRF felt my essay was worthy of a prize,” she said. The award carries a $250 scholarship.
Zukor, who wrote about her journey from conservative crusader to atheist advocate, will have excerpts of her winning essay published in Freethought Today, the FFRF’s monthly newsletter. Upon her winning, Zukor was immediately congratulated by club members and leaders in the movement.
