We are launching a unique ‘Strength of America’ essay contest.
What is the " The Strength of America" ? Why is this strength important? Who or what embodies this strength?
We all know about Columbus and the Revolutionary War and names of Presidents, but do our kids have a basic understanding of what makes America great?
The winner from each participating school will receive a reward like none other.
FIRST PLACE: IRONREVENGE, the World’s Largest Street-Legal Truck, will pick up the winner (and maybe one or two of his/her friends) at his/her home and drive them to school. Imagine the reaction of the winner’s classmates when the winner pulls up in a truck nearly eleven feet high.
A photographer and possibly even a film crew will be on hand to cover the event as classmates witness the arrival of the winner in the biggest street legal truck in the world.
RUNNERS UP: 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners (and a school chaperone) will be chauffeured on a field trip to a nearby manufacturing or service company providing exclusive American-made products or services. This grassroots initiative will provide our younger generation with a better understanding of what 'The Strength of America' is all about.
We encourage parents and school faculty to provide students with the resources to help our children discover 'The Strength of America' . No previously printed definitions, statements or video documentary footage will be allowed in the essay. Formal contest rules will be provided to those schools chosen.
Below, you will find a short form to complete and submit for our review. We will be back in touch with you providing follow-up questions and updates about the launch of the project.
'The Strength of America' Project is sponsored by Magicmotorsports, LLC, and Ironrevenge, the world’s biggest and boldest street-legal truck.
During a recent event with over 120,000 spectators, we conducted a short survey. Nearly 90% of children (Ages 8-14) had no idea what the strength of America is.
Most parents were surprised and disappointed by this lack of response.
Have current generations of students missed out on the most basic fundamentals of being an American? Has ‘The Strength of America’ somehow been overlooked in many of our homes and school systems? 'IRONREVENGE', the symbol of 'The Strength of America', would like to help America remember what makes it great.
