Four American History Essay Contest winners from Holy Trinity Classical Christian School will be recognized at the Thomas Heyward, Jr. chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution annual award ceremony at First Presbyterian Church on February 11th at 2:30 p.m.
Charlotte Grace Price (5th Grade), Mary Elinor Chumney (6th Grade), Maley Grace Baisch (7th Grade), and Sarah Grace Lawrence (8th Grade) all submitted essays based on the contest’s prompt to “describe a colonial family’s discussion about the new Stamp Act and what role it played in organizing the colonists against the British King and Parliament.”
The competition is open to students in grades 5-8, with local chapters selecting one winner per grade level.
According to Holy Trinity Headmaster Rev. Chad E. Lawrence, “Holy Trinity is honored to have had students place in this essay contest since we opened our doors in 2012. Each year’s topic has complemented our liberal arts curriculum beautifully, giving our students the opportunity to convey what they have learned in History class from a first person perspective.”
