Four eighth-grade students from Zion Lutheran
School in Lincoln won the top four places in the Americanism essay
contest sponsored by American Legion Auxiliary 263. The topic of the
essays was "Americanism -- Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue." The
purpose of the contest was to aid the schools of Illinois in the
teaching of Americanism and good citizenship.
The awards were presented by Marlene Schrader, Americanism chairman
from American Legion Auxiliary 263, following a recent school chapel
service. Each of the four winners received a monetary award.

competition, with the opportunity to advance to the state level.
