Nebo School District and Intermountain Spanish Fork Hospital announce essay winners.

“Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity.”  Participants were asked to draw upon personal experiences and express what the love of medicine means to society.

Approximately 50 excellent essays were received from the students attending the Nebo School District high schools. One $500 winner was chosen from each school and the essay that received  the most votes through the elimination process was awarded the Grand Prize of $750.  

The Grand Prize winner:
Kylie Smith, “Rays of Light Within the Darkness” Spanish Fork High

Kaya Bayne, “A Healing Connection” Maple Mountain High
Hailey Pitcher, “My Healthcare Heroes” Payson High
Peyton Cook, “The Science of Love” Salem Hills High
