Hempfield boy takes honors in Daughters of the American Revolution essay contest

Deb Erdley

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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
