winners-cropped-7394604Press release from the Shrewsbury Towne-Monmouth Chapter, D.A.R.

The Shrewsbury Towne-Monmouth Chapter, National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution has announced the winners of its 2015 essay contest, part of a nationwide initiative in which DAR invites students of local public, private, parochial schools and registered home study programs (grades five through eight) to compose an essay on an assigned theme.

The local chapter has been participating in this national essay contest for over 25 years, with 15 area schools contributing 705 essay entries to this year’s contest. For 2015 — a year that marks the 125th anniversary of Ellis Island as an immigration station — student essayists were asked to “Imagine yourself as a child traveling through Ellis Island in 1892. How would you describe your experience to your cousin who had never heard of Ellis Island?”

Every student who entered an essay will receive a certificate of participation from the local chapter. The names of the winners from the Shrewsbury Towne-Monmouth Chapter, all of whom receive certificates and monetary awards, follow after the break.
