The winners were Abby McGill (1st place), Kate Brashear (2nd place), and Ashley Straub (4th place), all of whom chose a woman-related topic for their paper.

Abby’s paper was titled “Eleanor Roosevelt: Taking a Stand for Human Rights,” Kate chose “Elizabeth Cady Stanton: Taking a Stand for Women’s Suffrage,” and Ashley wrote “Harriet Beecher Stowe: Taking a Stand to End Slavery, 1811-1896.”

The ladies went on to compete at the state-wide competition on April 8, however none of them placed.
