The annual Americanism Poster Contest is a fun and educational program for Fifth Grade students. It was created to stimulate interest in American History in support of the classroom curriculum. A new poster topic is set every year.
The 2023-24 Topic is
“The Boston Tea Party”
December 16, 2023 is the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. Students are asked to make a poster about this important protest leading up to the American Revolution.
The Gold Country SAR is pleased to provide local teachers with speakers who are knowledgeable on the yearly poster topic. Most of our speakers appear in Revolutionary War costume or uniform. Posters are judged and prizes are awarded at the School, Chapter, State and National levels. A representative of the National Art Education Association (NAEA) is invited to participate in the national poster judging.
