Local Fifth Grader Knows Why NJ Is The Best State


Ten year old Kyle Harms’ fourth grade essay is a winner!

Assemblyman Dave Rible sponsored an essay contest for fourth and fifth grade students in his district, through a letter mailed to teachers, some of whom assigned a project to their students.

In 300 words, Kyle wrote an essay on why New Jersey is the greatest of all the states. He was selected as one of eight winners out of over 300 entries and got to go to the state house a few days ago to meet with Assemblyman Rible and Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno.

Kyle was given a tour and presented with an Assembly Resolution signed by the Speaker and Clerk of the General Assembly for his accomplishment.

Kyle’s essay included highlights like Thomas Edison’s factory, Monmouth Battlefield Park, the beautiful beaches, great colleges like Princeton and Seton Hall, the Super Bowl Champion Giants, the NJ Devils, the Liberty Science Center, Cape May Zoo and Adventure Aquarium.

And as if that isn’t enough of an accomplishment for a ten year old, Kyle has also won a poster contest on what makes Monmouth County unique. He is one of twelve students out of over 8000 entries selected as a winner and his poster will be on display in the Monmouth County Clerk’s office for the month of December!
