Chapter Poster Contest at Heritage Christian Academy

Three students in 4th Grade teacher Tammy Hayes’ history classes recently won the title of “Class Poster Winner” in the Americanism Poster Contest sponsored by the Sons of the American Revolution. Mrs. Hayes has partnered with the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter in Cadiz for the past two school years and included the national contest as a part of her history curriculum. The theme for this year’s contest is, “George Rogers Clark.”

Class winners were: Elle Heltsley (Ms. Hayes’ homeroom), Ryan Riggs and Emma Harris (tied – Mrs. Riggs’ homeroom). Each received a winner’s certificate and a book about George Rogers Clark.  Posters were judged “blind” by the school’s teachers and administrators, who had no knowledge of the identity of the student who created each poster.  Chapter compatriots will choose one of these three winners to enter into the state level of competition.

In addition to presenting certificates to each student contest participant, the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter recognized Ms. Hayes for her dedicated efforts to teach American History to the children of the community by awarding her the “Bronze Good Citizenship Medal.” Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter President Geoff Baggett and Vice-President Steve Mallory presented the medal after their “Revolutionary War in a Trunk” educational presentation.
