Sons of the American Revolution, Ohio Society Activities

Ohio SAR Poster Contest Winner

Zoey Papanikolaou of Cleveland, Ohio was selected as this year’s winner of the Ohio Society SAR Americanism Elementary School Poster Contest which was judged at the Society’s State Conference in Blue Ash, Ohio on April 30th, 2016.  Papanikolaou entered the contest through the Western Reserve Society.
The contest was developed to help stimulate interest in, and aid the study of, American History in the 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade curriculum. In 2012, the contest was expanded to include Cub Scouts, Brownies, Children of the American Revolution members, and other youth organizations recognized by the SAR Americanism Committee in addition to public, private, parochial, and home schools.
Each year, the SAR stipulates that themes for the poster entries alternate between people and events of the American Revolution, with academic years ending in even numbers to center on Revolutionary War events.  The topics entered this year included events such as the Boston Tea Party, the Treaty of Camp Charlotte, and the winning poster’s topic: the capture of Fort Ticonderoga.
Papanikolaou will receive a certificate and cash awards, and the poster will be entered into the National Society SAR’s contest to be judged at the Society’s annual Congress in Boston, Massachusetts in July.

    My school received letters about the Brochure contest today (2/17/17) but none of the student materials it said were provided. I am trying to encourage my 8th graders to participate but couldn’t really even tell them what it was. Can I get contact info so that I can request a set of the students pages?
    thank you

    • Your request has been forwarded to the state chair of the Brochure contest. If you do not hear from him by March 1, please post another email here or contact the current State President Don McGraw.
