AARP Essays

Blain Takes GCRTA Essay Top Honors, Advances to State
Tessa Blain has been selected by the Grayson County Retired Teachers Association as the countywide winner of the 2018-19 "Grandparent of the Year" essay contest, jointly sponsored by AARP Kentucky and the Kentucky Retired Teachers Association.

A Wilkey 5th grader in Ann Decker’s room, Tessa’s essay will now represent Grayson County in the state finals. The winner will be honored at the KRTA convention this spring. Tessa is the daughter of Jim and Teresa Blain.

Students districtwide participated in the contest to answer why "My Grandparent Should be the AARP Kentucky Grandparent of the Year." GCRTA members awarded certificates and cash prizes to room and school winners at each elementary.

The essay competition is a unique way to recognize the significant contributions of older Kentuckians in shaping the lives and values of youth across the Commonwealth. In Kentucky, an increasing number of grandparents or adults 50 and over are primary caregivers to minor children.
