The Reclaiming the Sky Essay Competition provides airport and airline workers an opportunity to discuss how they can apply the lessons of 9/11’s aviation heroes profiled in “Reclaiming the Sky” to meet the challenges in their lives today.
The essay competition is being conducted by the Human Resiliency Institute at Fordham University and will offer $3,300 in awards in three categories: Airport workers, Airline employees, and Students.
Full details, including a tab to submit an essay, are on the program’s website at reclaimingthesky.com.
The book tells the story of how airport and airline workers “rose up” on 9/11, and for months after, to get America moving again.
The stories of the aviation heroes are highlighted in “Reclaiming the Sky” by Tom Murphy, founder of the Human Resiliency Institute at Fordham. Anyone who purchases a book on Amazon and submits an essay should know that all profits from the book go to aviation charities.
Essays will be accepted up to August 10, 2021 – enter online at www.reclaimingthesky.com. Newark Airport will host an award event and the announcement of winners on September 1, 2021.
