Americanism Elementary School Poster Contest
This contest is directed at students in the 3th, 4th or 5th grades, depending on which year the American Revolution is taught in their educational system - including ecumenical and home school students.
The contest is also open to members of the Cub Scouts and Brownies and Children of the American Revolution (CAR) who are in the same grades but whose school system may not be participating in the contest. In the case where the local school system, or its equivalent, is participating, the young person must enter the contest through the school and not as a separate entry.
The 2016 Topic is "Fort Ticonderoga's Cannons & the Henry Knox Trail".
