    Each year, the Jacob Forney Chapter of the National Daughters of the American Revolution sponsors an American History Essay Contest. The goal is to encourage young people to think creatively about our nation’s great history and learn about history in a new light.


    Each academic year, a unique essay topic is chosen, and guidelines are made available to schools. The contest is open to all students grades 5 – 12 and is judged on historical accuracy, adherence to the topic, organization of materials, interest, originality, spelling, grammar, punctuation, and neatness. This year, the prompts are:


    Grades 9 – 12  Select a figure from the era of the American Revolution (1773-1783). How did this person influence the course of the Revolution? The person can be famous or an everyday man, woman, or child, perhaps even a relative. 800 – 1200 words


    Winners will be judged and selected and may advance to the state level. The Jacob Forney Chapter will recognize the winners at a spring meeting and all participants will receive a certificate of participation.


    The DEADLINE for entries is October 31, 2022. The guidelines and forms are attached to this email. We hope you’ll encourage your students to participate in the American History Essay Contest.
