American History Essay Contest

October 05, 2012

The Daughters of the American Revolution are also sponsoring an American History Essay Contest for all 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. The theme for this year is:

The often unrecognized people and groups, including African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics, and others who provided military, patriotic, and public service in support of the American Revolution. Describe a particular person or group and how they supported the cause for American Independence. Explain why it is especially important to honor the unsung heroes and often forgotten patriots.

For more information, see the attached form. The essay deadline is Friday, November 16th. All essays must be submitted to Darcy Kennedy at dkennedy@hopelearning.org.
