Thomasville Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) hosted the First Place winners of their 2015 American History Essay Contest, their teachers and families at their January 2016 meeting. Each winner introduced by DeeDee Sims, American History Chair, read their essay and received a First Place Certificate. Second and third place winners also were sent certificates. The Essay Contest topic was "A Colonial Family's Reaction to the Stamp Act" marking the 250th anniversary of the Act. The Stamp Act passed by the British Parliament in 1765 was a tax on every piece of printed paper. Colonists viewed the Stamp Act as "taxation without representation" since the American Colonies did not have any one representing them in Parliament. This was a major step towards the break with England, the American Revolution and the formation of the United States of America.
The Fifth Grade students participated in the Daughters of the American Revolution American History Essay Contest. The topic was “Celebrating a Century: America’s National Parks”. We are very proud of our 5th graders winners. The award ceremony will be March 7, 2017 at Freedom Middle School at 6:30 PM.
