Canon-McMillan High School's ninth grade student Jordin Williams competed against public, parochial, cyber, and home-schooled high school students from Washington, Greene, Allegheny, Fayette, and Westmoreland Counties to win first place in The Bradford House Historical Association's Whiskey Rebellion Poster Contest. (Her winning poster is pictured below!)
According to the rules on their website, this contest is held annually and the poster must include:
"The poster board should reflect your research and interpretation of the topic's significance in Western Pennsylvania history during the years 1750 – 1850. It should be at least 60% visual images (portraits, maps, documents, photos, diagrams, illustrations, etc.) with labels, captions, and brief written content (bulleted lists and timelines are appropriate), in their own words and creatively displayed to enhance your presentation. 1. The subject will be a topic of Western Pennsylvania history, 1750 – 1850. Cash prizes were awarded to the top 5 entries in each division: Middle School (grades 5-8) and High School (grades 9-12)."
Congratulations Jordin and special shout out to Mr. Charriere for bringing this opportunity to her!
