Essay Contest Winners!

We recently held an essay contest for Teens here at the library. The assignment was to read the book "Freedom Road" by Howard Fast and then write an essay on race relations after the Civil War.

1st Prize: Lindsey Clark ($500)
2nd Prize: Sarah Bennett ($300)
3rd Prize: Samantha Pelletier ($200)

The judges were delighted with the caliber of the essays submitted and found it very difficult to choose among them.

We were also very pleased that we received submissions from Lyman Hall High School, Sheehan High School, Choate Rosemary Hall, and one home-schooled student.

Congratulations to the winners and thank you to all who participated!
