The electronic security industry works intimately with the public safety sector. We appreciate the contribution that police, firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs offer to our communities. Students who reside in a participating state must enter their local ESA Chapter awards to become eligible for the overall national awards. Students who reside in a state without an ESA chapter or in a non-participating state should submit their applications directly to ESA. Students must also submit a 500-1,000 word essay along with their application, answering the question: "What it means to me to have my parent/guardian involved in securing our community."
