Clark Elementary students won multiple state, division, and national awards in the National Junior American Citizen contest.
The contest, which is sponsored by the Paducah Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, began last fall with a theme of “The 50th Anniversary of the Lunar Landing”. The contest has 7 categories – Poem, Short Story, Banner, Poster, Stamp, Photographic essay and Community Service. It is available to all students in grades K-12.
Local entries were received and judged with 1st place winners sent to the state level contest. Those who were selected as 1st place in the state were entered in the East Central division contest, which comprises 5 states. Those who received 1st place in the division were entered in the national level contest.
In the short story category, Clark fourth grader Caroline Adkins was state runner-up.
In the poster category, Clark second grader Bennett Seaton was state runner-up.
In the banner category, Clark fifth graders Bailey Beyer, Kara Brien, Elizabeth Esper, and fourth grader Cromwell Hancock were state champions, division champions, and national runner-up.
