Hempfield boy takes honors in Daughters of the American Revolution essay contest
Hempfield fifth-grader Joseph F. Bonomo IV is headed to Washington, D.C., with his parents to pick up honors as the Pennsylvania State Society Daughters of the American Revolution’s American History Essay Contest winner for his grade.
The son of Keira and Joseph F. Bonomo III, Joseph attends Aquinas Academy in Greensburg.
Writing in the centennial year of the passage of the 19th Amendment that codified the voting rights of women in the U.S., Joseph’s essay, “The Women’s Suffrage Campaign,” examined the reactions of men and women to the change.
Joseph and his parents will be recognized at the PSSDAR Pennsylvania Luncheon on June 27 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
Joseph also was selected as the Eastern District essay winner for fifth grade. His essay now goes to the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution for judging at the national level.
