The Americanism Essay Contest for 2020 was negatively impacted by the Corona Virus.
The theme for this year is “How Can Patriotism Be Demonstrated”. The students were separated into two divisions; division one includes 5th and 6th grades. Division 2 includes 7th and 8th grades. We received 230 essays from Stillwater. The top three essays in each division were forwarded to the District Chair for evaluation and the top three from the District were forwarded to the State for evaluation.
The winning essayists were:
Division 1, First place Lodge winner and District, Andie Luskin, Grade 6, Stillwater Schools, Second place Lodge winner and District winner, Dakota Lesson, Grade6, Stillwater Schools, and third place Lodge winner and District winner, Alexis LaPlante, Grade 6, Stillwater Schools.
Division 2: First place Lodge winner and District winner, Neil Brennan, Grade 7 Stillwater Schools, Second place Lodge winner, Aden Wickham, Grade 8, Stillwater Schools, and third place Lodge winner, Miranda Price Grade 8, Stillwater Schools.
