As part of its year-long celebration of women’s history and the passage of the 19th Amendment, the Langhorne Council for the Arts invited students from Neshaminy High School and middle schools to participate in essay and poster contests that explore exemplary characteristics and contributions of women throughout history. While most of the events were canceled due to the pandemic, these contests ended just before the shutdown.
Since an awards ceremony was unable to take place, checks of $100 were mailed with congratulatory letters to teachers of the winning students from each school.
Winners are listed below:
– Maple Point Middle School: Lindsay Binder and Gabby Cavallo (poster); Kylee Grazela (essay)
– Poquessing Middle School: Melanie Molina (poster); Jack Kitchen (essay)
– Neshaminy High School: Gina Grasmeder (essay)
