The Pima Heritage Days’ essay winners have been determined. This year’s theme “Our Todays & Tomorrows Because of Yesterdays: was reflected in each essay submitted in the contest “What My Heritage Means to Me.”
In the fifth- and sixth-grade category, Garet Morris of Mrs. Goodman’s sixth grade in Pima Elementary School titled his winning essay “Inherited Values” to earn $75. Dean Haller of Thatcher Middle School’s Spencer Lamoreaux’s seventh-grade class submitted “Shoelaces and Spikes” to win the $100 offered for the seventh- and eighth-grade category.
In the high school category, Pima High School senior Hadley Schmidt will be awarded $200 for “Shoes to Fill”.
These three young men will give their compositions to a Heritage Days’ audience at the Eastern Arizona Museum in Pima on Saturday, April 22, at 10 a.m.
