The Halifax Resolves Chapter of the North Carolina Sons of the American Revolution is sponsoring a poster contest.
The subject is an event of the War of Independence.
Ken Wilson, president of the Halifax Resolves Chapter, spoke about the competition to four fourth-grade classes and four fifth-grade classes from Manning Elementary School and answered questions.
Wilson also spoke about the project to the fifth-grade class at Halifax Academy.
Wilson presented a few sample events, but left the choice of event up to the student. Many questions were answered not only about the contest, but also about Wilson’s colonial clothing.
Posters will be judged at the Chapter meeting on March 12. The chapter level winner will receive a winner’s certificate and a check for $100.
The winner’s poster will be submitted to the state-level competition to be held May 15 at the Alamance Battlefield.
