TNF Youth & Young Professionals Committee successfully organized TNF’s first-ever Summer Essay Contest! The contest was well received by students in all categories (High School, Middle School and Elementary School). The committee was impressed by the participation, quality of essays and the enthusiasm demonstrated by our youngsters. The committee has also offered to provide personal feedback to all upper middle school and high school participants, as a way to help them train for college essays.
Kudos and Congratulations to Ishita Mannar, a 10th grader from Cleveland, OH who ideated the concept as a way to educate youngsters about the value of giving back to the community, our ancestral connections and the efforts of TNF.
Kudos to all the participants who participated and the winners!

A big thanks to Youth & Young Professionals Committee members Arun Periyakaruppan, Anu Suppiah, Anita Croos, & Priya Periakaruppan for expanding their reach and influencing youngsters through their efforts.
