Loudoun First Responders Foundation Awards Essay Contest Winners

The Loudoun First Responders Foundation (LFRF) named 12 Loudoun County middle school students essay contest winners on Friday.  Students read their essays, “how have you, or someone you know, been helped by a First Responder” to a crowd of people gathered at the Leesburg Fire Station.  Loudoun First Responders Foundation board members, Dr. Edgar Hatrick, students, parents and principals attended the presentation. The Foundation’s first annual sponsor DuPont Fabros Technology was represented by Scott Davis, Executive Vice President of Operations.

Each essay winner received a $250 check to be used for his or her future education.

Students were required to answer in 100 words or less and could include any visual cutout, drawing or photo to support their essay. This is the fifth year LFRF has held the contest.  The competition is used in support of promoting and establishing a ‘National First Responder’s Day’.

The Loudoun First Responders Foundation (LFRF) mission is to financially support any individual Loudoun County public safety officer (and their family) facing needs arising from injury, illness, and conditions incurred in the line of duty.  To accomplish this mission, the LFRF will raise private donations and create and strengthen innovative partnerships between organizations, individuals and corporate neighbors in our community. Donations received may also be used to support educational needs of the sheriff, fire, rescue and police organizations in our community.

The vision of the LFRF is to be a sustainable non-profit foundation inspiring philanthropy and a passion for public safety in Loudoun County so that individuals, organizations and corporate leaders see the value of bridging the gap between identified needs and available public funds for public safety in our community.
