Finalists for the 2014 State of the Union Essay Contest, sponsored by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), joined the Senator for a roundtable discussion on the issues explored in their essays.

A panel of five Vermont teachers judged the essays and selected Alexina Federhen, a junior at Mount Anthony Union High School in Bennington, as the winner of the contest.

The judges awarded Katharine Mayo of Twinfield Union School second place. Two students -- Robert "Will” Aldrich of Mount Abraham Union High School and Brian Townley of Woodstock Union High School – tied for third place.
