We have a winner!

The winner of the 2013 Anita Sanford Tolson High School Writing Award is Margaret Anne Foster, who in 2012-13 was in Grade 9 at North Oldham High School in Goshen, Kentucky.

Her faculty sponsor is David Green who teaches a variety of social studies classes including AP US History.

Paper title: “Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, and Antebellum Women’s Culture”

The Tolson Award goes to a high school student who has written an outstanding paper on a history-related topic (where the topic was determined by the writer and not by assignment). The paper must be 1,500 to 2,500 words and have at least eight references (including primary sources).

Ms. Foster will be honored with a $100 cash prize and certificate at the annual KATH meeting in Lexington on September 28th.
