Two Halifax Academy students each earned third-place state honors in the Sons of the American Revolution brochure and poster contests.

Carolina Corum, an eighth-grade student in Tracey Lynch’s class and Liam Cooke, a fifth-grader in Valerie Henley’s class, were both winners in the Halifax Resolves Chapter’s annual contests.

Corum was the third-place state winner in the brochure contest and Cooke was the third-place state winner in the poster contest.

Each year the Halifax Resolves chapter conducts a poster contest for fourth- and fifth-grade students about a Revolutionary War person or event. The chapter sponsors a brochure contest for eighth grade students pertaining to one of the five founding documents.
