DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION (DAR) ESSAY CONTEST
The American History Essay Contest was established to encourage young people to think creatively about our nation's great history and learn about history in a new light. This contest is open to students in public, private, and parochial schools, and registered home-study programs. Students in grades five through eight are encouraged to participate. Each year, a selected topic for use during the academic year is announced, and contest instructions are published online and sent to schools by participating DAR chapters. Essays are judged for historical accuracy, adherence to the topic, organization of materials, interest, originality, spelling, grammar, punctuation, and neatness. Each student participant receives a certificate of participation from the chapter and the chapter winners receive bronze medals and certificates.
The topic for this years' essay was the Boston Massacre. March 5, 2020 marked the 250th Anniversary of the Boston Massacre, considered to be a pivotal event that paved the way to the American Revolution. DAR essay participants were asked to imagine they were living in Boston and, after witnessing the events of March 5, to describe their family’s discussion about the Boston Massacre and what role it played in organizing the colonists against the British King and Parliament.
