Lesson for AIG

A high school senior who won an essay contest has donated the award money back to the financially-strapped enterprise that gave it to her. Here's an excerpt from her letter:

As you well know, for high school-aged scholars, a forum of this caliber and the incentives it creates for academic excellence are rare. I also know that keeping The Concord Review active requires resources. So, please allow me to put my Emerson award money to the best possible use I can imagine by donating it to The Concord Review so that another young scholar can experience the thrill of seeing his or her work published.
