  • A Middletown teen’s essay won top honors Saturday from the state chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).
    Anneliese Clair, a seventh-grade, home-schooled student who also attends Glasgow Christian Academy, received first-place in her age group for her essay about the lives of children during the American Revolution.
    Clair’s essay was nominated for the contest after being chosen as a local winner by the Cooch’s Bridge Chapter, one of seven DAR chapters in Delaware. She previously won chapter- and state-level awards in 2012.
    Her essay will now be submitted to judging at the national level.
    The DAR American History Essay Conest is open to students in fifth through eighth grades who attend public, private, parochial schools, as well as registered home-study programs. Essays are judged for historical accuracy, adherence to the topic, organization of materials, interest, originality, spelling, grammar, punctuation and neatness.
