Aarya Desai, Gwinnett essay winner


Aarya Desai, a 6th grade Hull Middle School student, has won second place in the Middle School Category of Gwinnett County's Bicentennial Essay Contest. The essay is below.

Why is Gwinnett County a Great Place to Live

Gwinnett County was founded in the year of 1818 by Button Gwinnett who was one of the many who signed the Declaration of Independence. Gwinnett County has a population of 920,260 people. There are a total of 127 schools in Gwinnett County. All of them challenge their students to become the best and the brightest.

Gwinnett County is my home. My family's home. My friends' home. My school is located here. Most importantly I was born here. Gwinnett County is the place I have lived in for 12 years. I always enjoy going to explore or going to the beautiful green parks of Gwinnett for a nice relaxing walk in the park. Gwinnett County is a fun place to hang out with your friends in all the different places located outside of our homes where we can enjoy nature. Every year in Town Green in Duluth there are so many different festivals including my personal favorites, “Duluth Fall Festival” and the “Christmas Spectacular.” They even host “Food Truck Friday” almost every single Friday. This lets people get outside of their home and enjoy the beautiful treasury of Gwinnett County.

Gwinnett County also has a ton of places where we can go explore during the winter when it is really cold. My favorite place is to go to the mall. Mainly the Sugarloaf Mill Park. They have so many different places where we can go shopping or entertain ourselves. We can go to the AMC theater to watch the latest movies, play some arcade games at Dave & Busters, or even go and head out for a jump at Jump Street. We always have a way to enjoy ourselves in Gwinnett County.

Gwinnett County also supports the idea of sports. When you are taking a drive around Gwinnett County, look outside the window: you will see gymnastics stadium, soccer fields, football fields, hockey rink, skating rink, ice skating rinks, softball fields, baseball fields, track racers, people riding bikes, and more. Gwinnett County is never a place where we can sit on our couches and eat chips all day long because people are always outside being active. The schools in Gwinnett County also have a physical education class to help kids stay active and have fun exercising at the same time.

People in Gwinnett County are very lucky to live in this county. We are blessed with many different opportunities to do different things. Thank you, Button Gwinnett.
