An organization called Elevate Your Life, which started 14 years ago after a family’s loss of their son Ryan due to drug addiction, puts on essay contests every year with the goal to inspire kids to dream big.

They have to answer five questions in the essay, like what is your dream? What are you going to do with it once you get it? How does education play a role in it?

The goal is to inspire these kids to dream. The five winners from this year’s contest got to ride in an airshow airplane with a pilot from the Gowen Thunder Air Show.

What an awesome experience and organization!
