Essay Contest Winners Get Special Access to Glenn's History Vault

Early in 2017, Glenn launched an essay-writing contest that challenged high schoolers to analyze famous people from history and uncover their life stories --- before they were famous. Two Texas high schools stepped up to the challenge and got their students involved.

Students who participated aimed for historical accuracy and originality. Final contestants were held up for an online vote before winners were selected.

A senior from Johnny Economedes High School in Edinburg, Texas --- Zayda G. --- won the first round with her essay on George Washington, "The Farmer." The winner of round two was Rachel C., a junior from Kilgore High School in Kilgore, Texas, who focused her essay on Abraham Lincoln, "The Lawyer."

Mercury One presented both winners with a scholarship and treated them to a tour of Glenn's studios and an exclusive look at his historical artifact collection.

Below are photos from their visit:

Who better to tell these stories than young American students, willing to explore and share their untold beginnings, and show their relevance today?

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.
