ANNUAL HISTORY ESSAY CONTEST
Thank you to all of those who participated in our annual history essay contest! This year’s topics were as follows:
Fourth graders were asked to write about one of the following topics: 1.) Their state’s history, including the history of the Catholic Church in their state. 2.) An important person to the history of their state, or 3.) An important historical site in their state.
Fifth graders were asked to write about a historical character born before 1950 from North America who made an impact on the Church and country.
Sixth graders were asked to choose a country they would like to visit, research the country’s history, and write about two places of historical interest that they would like to visit and why.
Seventh and eighth graders were asked to choose a non-North American historical character who made their most important historical contribution between 300 A.D.–1900 A.D. and relate how that person influenced the time and place in which they lived.
High schoolers were asked to describe an important historical event, the key players, its outcome, and how it changed history.
