The Old Barracks Museum in Trenton is holding an essay contest for fourth and fifth-graders to celebrate George Washington’s birthday.
There will be two winners from each grade, who, with their immediate families will be given free museum tours and are invited to meet George Washington.
Essay topic: George Washington lived in a very different time. There were no phones, cars, computers or electricity. If George Washington could visit America in 2015, what do you think he would be most proud of in our country today?
The winning essays will be chosen based on content, style, originality and grammar. All entries must be received by mail by Feb. 6. On the Web: barracks.org.
