The Grand Lodge of the Benevolent Protective Order of the Elks has announced that Members of the Grand Lodge Fraternal Committee have selected the theme for the 2021-2022 Grand Lodge Americanism Essay Contest as:
"What does it mean to love your country?
The contest starts with the Local Lodges, progresses through District and State levels, and ends with the naming of our National Winners at the Grand Lodge Session in Atlanta, GA in July 2022. This very important Patriotic Contest gives school children in grades 5-8 the opportunity to express views on their pride in America.
