Women’sHistory Month Essay Contest

September 7, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

In the spring the Museum holds an annual Women’s History Month essay contest. Children in the Second to Eighth grades write a one-to-two-page essay about a woman that fits that year’s theme. Themes in the past have been a woman that lived in World War II, the American Revolution, involved in politics, African American, from the County of Bedford, etc. The children are then graded by different judges and those with the most points in the 2-5th grades & 6-8th grades get $50 each. There are prizes for 1st place and Runner up in the groups 2-3, 4-5, and 6-8. First place winners receive $25 and Runners Up receive $15 each.
