DAR Essay Contest

Posted on: April 26, 2021
Top 3 DAR Essay contest recipients

Mrs. Henderson’s 5th-grade APT students wrote historical fiction essays for a contest sponsored by the DAR, Daughters of the American Revolution. 

The topic for this essay contest was:

March 5, 2020, marks the 250th anniversary of the Boston Massacre, considered to be a pivotal event that paved the way to the American Revolution. Imagine you are living in Boston and, after witnessing the events of March 5, describe your family’s discussion about the Boston Massacre and what role it played in organizing the colonists against the British King and Parliament.

The students had to research this topic first, then base their fictional essay on the research. 

Mrs. Dar West is a former teacher at Three Rivers Local School District and has been a part of the DAR organization for many years. She is instrumental in helping our students be a part of this contest.

Congratulations to all participants and to the top three award recipients. 

Cami Parker 1st place
Lizzy Hilvert 2nd place
Elaina Workman  3rd place
