Libertad Chapter, NSDAR Announces American History Essay Winners
LIBERTY, March 14, 2013 - Libertad Chapter, NSDAR, is pleased to announce the following winners in the American History Essay contest. The purpose of the American History Committee is to promote American history throughout the year by honoring significant historical people, places, dates, and events. It does this by sponsoring the American History Essay Contest and the Christopher Columbus Essay Contest. In many instances, the two essay contests provide an additional opportunity for teachers to reach out beyond the existing curriculum. The committee also encourages chapters to promote American history in other ways; for example, by recognizing women in American history. The Chairman is Mary Willingham Partlow. The students will be recognized at a ceremony March 21, 2013, at the Price Daniel Meeting Room.
