Every school year the Library administers the Margaret Chase Smith Essay Contest. It is open to Maine high school seniors and invites them to write on a theme related either to a historical milestone or a current event. Thanks to the generous support from the Margaret Chase Smith Foundation, prizes are $1000 for first place, $500 for second place, $250 for third place, and five $50 honorable mention prizes.
