The Charlie Brown Essay contest is sponsored by the Charlie Brown Initiative. It is offered to 6th-8th grade students and its purpose is to educate young people about the accomplishments of a man named Charlie Brown, an ex-slave turned millionaire who resided in Brazoria County in the late 1800’s. “A truly remarkable story!” said LJI 8th grade ELA teacher Paula Brown.

The Charlie Brown Essay Contest objectives are to increase literacy awareness, build research skills, and improve writing and public speaking abilities in youth. Clute Intermediate 7th grade ELA teacher Michelle Crowell shared how reflecting on a local historian, that isn’t mentioned in school history books, takes time and patience on a path of finding out who he was, what his life was like and how he impacted Brazoria County. She loves that the students were collaboratively sharing information with one another as well as having those conversations that teachers strive for them to have about reading and writing. Thank you Michelle Crowell, Paula Brown and Shelby Hollen for inspiring these students.
