Brooklyn Levert, and 20 of her Spicewood Elementary classmates, entered the annual Daughters of the American Revolution Essay Contest in December. Levert’s essay rose to the top and was chosen by the Local Daughters of the American Revolution Chapter as their choice to compete in the Texas State DAR essay contest. Linda Cole, with the local Daughters chapter, presented certificates of participation to all essay participants during the morning assembly at SWE Thursday. In addition to a special certificate, Levert will be recognized at the organization’s’ next Chapter meeting at the River City Grill, Saturday, January 23rd. There will be a meet-and-greet at 9:30 a.m., followed by the meeting, luncheon, and award ceremony.
“We instructed our fifth-grade students to describe a colonial family’s discussion about the Stamp Act and what role it played in organizing the colonists against the British King and Parliament,” said SWE Writing Teacher, Courtney Webb. “My students had been learning about The Stamp Act, and many were excited to participate. Brooklyn is an extraordinary writer. She really got into character in her writing assignment and put herself in that time period. Brooklyn spent a lot of time researching and perfecting her essay. Her hard work efforts paid off. I am very proud of her!”
