Women's History Essay Contest

The Women’s History Essay Contest is sponsored by KDP each year as a fun way for eighth grade students in Carlisle Area School District to celebrate Women’s History Month and learn more about the vital roles that women have played and continue to play in American History. Students are required to write an essay about a woman who has played an important role in American history, a woman who is currently playing an important role in American history, or a woman in their family or community who plays an important role in their life. KDP members then read each essay and choose the first place and second place winners from each category. The winners read their essays aloud at an after school reception held by KDP.
