Pittsboro, NC - Eighth grade social studies students at Perry Harrison School participated in a photo essay activity sponsored by the North Carolina Bar Association Young Lawyers Division. Students were asked to write about how Abraham Lincoln’s legacy is important today and the role of law in fulfilling the promises of the Declaration of Independence. In addition to writing an essay, students were required to take a photograph that illustrated the message of their writing.

Six students were selected to represent Perry Harrison in the North Carolina Bar Association Young Lawyers Division Photo Essay Contest. The six students were Daniel Burwell, Clay Berg, Kendall Atwater, Michelle McKenzie, Hampton Perry, and Thomas Haire. Three students placed in the statewide contest: Atwater won an Honorable Mention; Haire was the second place winner; and McKenzie was the first place winner. All three will receive savings bonds and will be honored at the Law Day luncheon on Friday, May 1, in Raleigh.

"I am very proud of the contest winners. It is exciting for our students to be recognized for their effort and creativity," said Dawn Streets, social studies teacher.
