Molly Yost, a student at Cario Middle School, won a third place award in the Gilder-Lehrman Civil War essay contest. She and her parents along with her Social Studies teacher, Sheila Osborne, are being flown to New York City to receive the award.
The Gilder Lehrman Institute joins the Civil War Round Table of New York to co-sponsor an annual essay contest for Gilder Lehrman Affiliate School students.
Students examine the nation’s most divisive conflict through letters, speeches, songs, photographs, newspapers, military orders and other documents, conducting research with primary as well as secondary sources. Participation is limited to Gilder Lehrman Affiliate and Flagship School students.
