Local students from area schools have been selected as winners of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Good Citizenship Award and of the American History Essay contest.
The Koussinoc chapter, in Augusta, conducted a ceremony on March 9, at the Lithgow Library, to honor these students. The topic for the essay was, The Voyage of the Mayflower, the student took the persona of a passenger on that ship. Winners taking second place were, in sixth grade, Davyn Swindells, seventh grade, Natalie Dube and eighth grade was Georgianna Davidson. The first place winners were sixth grade Alden Wilkinson, seventh grade, Abigail Clark and eighth grade was Keith Radonis. All students are from St. Michael School, in Augusta. Abigail Clark also won for the state division and will be attending the Spring State Conference, in Augusta, in April.
Two senior students were entrants for the Good Citizen Award. Julia Basham who is a student at Erskine Academy and Makaelyn Porter, a student from Southern Aroostook Community High School. The students are chosen by faculty and student body for their qualities of dependability, service, leadership and patriotism. The student then submits a packet of personal data stating how and why they feel they show these qualities.
