Congratulations to the winners of the Junior American Citizens contest which took place last year on the topic of the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment. Although the notice of the winners was delayed as a result of the pandemic, Thomas Jefferson had several students that were honored for their participation and success in the competition. We are proud to announce that we had several students who won state and national recognition for their original submissions.
Congratulation to the following students:
Mayson Royster - 1st place in the regional competition, 1st place in the state, and a 1st place National Award for his short story!
