Three 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 next month.
Fifth-grader Jakob Stepp, seventh-grader, Mary Elinor Chumney and eighth-grader Maley Grace Baisch all submitted essays based on the contest’s prompt to “Pretend you are writing a journal while visiting one of the 58 national parks. Identify its location. Discuss why and when it was established as a national park. What makes this park one of our national treasures?”
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. This year’s topic once again complemented our liberal arts curriculum, giving our students the opportunity to share an important moment in American history from a first-person perspective.”
