Local DAR Chapter Accepting Entries from Students for Essay Contest
Students in grades 5-12 can now enter an annual essay competition to win a monetary scholarship prize from the Daughters of the American Revolution.
The Long Beach-based Susan B. Anthony Chapter is one of many DAR groups that presents awards to students from each grade level, with the winning essays moving on to district, state and national competitions. The contest is open to public, private and home-schooled students in Long Beach, Signal Hill, Seal Beach and Los Alamitos. The deadline to enter is November 15.
The essays give students a chance to learn about history and creatively do some traveling through time. The 2019-2020 topic for grades 5-8 is 19th Amendment: The Women's Suffrage Campaign." High school students will write 800 to 1200 words about Christopher Columbus "Comparing Ship Technology: The Ships Columbus Used vs. Ships of Today.”

On February 21, 1954, the Susan B. Anthony Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was organized in Long Beach, California. Mrs. Opal Simpson was the organizing regent. Meetings in the early years were held at either the Lafayette Hotel or the Pacific Club in Long Beach. Today the chapter has been involved in many activities during its sixty plus years. One of the chapter’s favorite projects was started by member Blenn Meigs, the bingo game held every year at the Long Beach Veterans Hospital.
Susan B. Anthony members are very active today and want you to join them. Please contact Regent Kathy Massenet for more information about the Susan B. Anthony Chapter and the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
