Mary Strebel, American History Chairman for Dr. Silas Hamilton Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR), recently announced the chapter winners of the American History Essay Contest 2022-2023. The winners are: seventh grade, Charli Sue Carter, daughter of Heidi and Jarrod Carter; and eighth grade, Haylie Eilerman, daughter of Tracie and Michael Eilerman.
Their essays were sent on to District V for judging at that level. Both are students at St. Francis/Holy Ghost School.
The title of this year’s essay is “Delegate to Second Continental Congress.” The Second Continental Congress met from May 10, 1775 – March 1, 1781, and included delegates from all thirteen colonies. The Congress was instrumental in shaping what was to become the United States of America.
The students were to imagine that they were delegates during 1775-1776, which colony they represented and what would be important for them to accomplish for their colony.
They will receive their medals and certificates at the Student Banquet March 6 at the Methodist Church.
