The CAF Rise Above program, whose mission is to inspire young people to RISE ABOVE adversity using the lessons and stories of the Tuskegee Airmen and the WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots), is offering a Tuskegee Airmen Essay Contest for students in grades 4 through 12.

The essay theme is to use the Six Guiding Principles (Aim High, Believe in Yourself, Use Your Brain, Be Ready to Go, Never Quit, Expect to Win) to describe how the Tuskegee Airmen achieved success, or choose a goal for yourself and show how you could use the Six Guiding Principles to achieve that goal.  Entries will be judged on overall content, including spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
