Linkin’ with the past

From an NPS press release… looks like a great November homeschool project! — JTM

“Looking for Your Lincoln Hero” essay and art contest underway

Participants nationwide are invited to submit pieces that illustrate the heroic qualities of Abraham Lincoln that they most admire as well as a description of the person in their own lives who most embodies those same qualities. The Lincoln-like hero can be someone known personally, or someone admired from afar. Artwork is also accepted in the competition. The submission deadline is December 1.

The “Looking for Your Lincoln Hero” contest is sponsored by the Looking for Lincoln Heritage Coalition, management entity for the Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area in central Illinois. Contest details and more information can be found at www.myhero.com. To learn more about Lincoln’s life journey, visit www.lookingforlincoln.com.
