Girl Power Essay Contest Winners Named
The Montgomery County Commission for Women (CFW) has announced the winners of its fourth annual Girl Power Contest. This year, contestants addressed the question, “As we commemorate the 100th anniversary of a woman’s right to vote, what barriers do you think still exist for women and girls and how can you help to break them?”
Commissioners judged entries based on creativity and content. Winners were selected from four categories: elementary, middle, high school and adult.
The 2020 student winners and honorable mention recipients are:
- First Place: Gena Hyson
- Honorable Mention: Sabrina Williams
- First Place: Bella Berrellez
- Honorable Mentions: Ayza Siddiqi and Evyia Makrodimitri

The contest was sponsored by the Montgomery County Commission for Women, Montgomery County Libraries and Friends of the Library, Montgomery County. All contest winners will be featured on the Commission for Women website and social media and will receive certificates.
