|Every spring the Brainerd Noon Sertoma Club sponsors the National Heritage Essay Contest for elementary students. A typical contest gets well over 200 entries from fifth graders throughout the district which are judged by a volunteer team of Sertomans. Winners are then invited to a meeting to present their winning entries. Their parents and teachers accompany them. The winning essays are published in the Brainerd Dispatch. Savings bonds are awarded to the top three places and$20.00 to the 4th thru 10th place winners.|
