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 2018 Topic is
“The Battle of Saratoga – Turning point of the American Revolution”
The Battle of Saratoga was actually two battles fought during September and October of 1777. It was a crucial victory for the Patriots during the American Revolution and is considered the key turning point of the Revolutionary War, as it helped convince France to support the Patriot’s cause.
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.
