Dave Gebhart’s sixth grade class at Fairbanks Middle School in Milford Center participated in the National Parks Contest sponsored by the Plain City Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).

Gebhart had his entire class of 23 participate with 11 total entries. The top three entries were chosen to be sent on to the state level.

Ex Regent Joy Ballard enjoyed visiting the classroom and had each individual or group show their project and talk about what they did. She then passed out the certificates for those winners who were picked by our Plain City Chapter DAR. Sam Johnson’s entry was chosen as second place in the state and also received a ribbon.

Ballard also explained what DAR is and they talked about some of the National Parks.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution created the Junior American Citizens Committee to promote good citizenship and appreciation of American heritage among every school-aged child in the United States.

The Junior American Citizens Committee offers contests in art, creative expression, and community service.

The theme for 2016 was: “Our National Parks: 100 Years of Service to America.”
