History surrounds us everywhere in Georgia in places like historic buildings, churches, battlefields, courthouses, cemeteries, even in the stories people tell. It is this abundance of history that led to The Georgia History 2006 Essay Contest topic of: Georgia's History in your own Backyard. This contest provides a chance for students in grades 4-12 to look around and discover what history can be found in their own neighborhoods.
The deadline to submit essays is December 12, 2005. Essays should be between one and two pages in length, with a maximum of 300 words.
