The First Academy Chapter of the National History Club is pleased to announce the winning documentaries for the second annual Examples of Honor Documentary making contest. Upper School students were challenged to select a key historical figure (domestic, foreign, ancient or modern) and examine how that person displayed honor throughout his or her life by creating a video documentary.
In First Place earning the grand prize of $1,000 is freshman Grace Cowan for her documentary on Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
In Second Place earning $500 for his documentary on Carl Lutz is sophomore Dean H. In Third Place earning $250 for her documentary about Jacob Lawrence is senior Nyla P.
Thank you to every student who participated in the second annual Examples of Honor contest and the National History Club looks forward to sponsoring this contest again next year.
