ELEANOR SHANDS ESSAY CONTEST 2013-2014
Hello Ladies, I have chosen my subjects for NEXT YEARS Essay Contest, and I have some request to release them before school starts as teachers are preparing their lesson plans for the next school year. I hope they will include them in the studies and I will have lots of essays. My main reason for wanting to do the essays is to further the Historical and Educational Objectives of our organization. By studying the subject areas I feel the children and young adults can learn about the Southern Heritage and perhaps make their own minds about the reasons of the War and not just believe the things they have heard over the years. Thanks. 

Junior High- How the War Between the States Split Families 

High School- Causes of the War Between the States, a Southern View 

Remember the essays must be between 400 and 600 words with complete footnotes and references and be in Essay form. The words Civil War should not be used except in direct quotes use War Between the States. 

I will accept them by e-mail as well as snail mail or hand delivery! 
They must be received by March 15th 2014. Have fun and learn kids! 

In UDC Love, Pam Mauldin, Historian, MS Div. UDC.

  
 It's two weeks until Division Convention!!!

    The Convention Committee and host chapters have worked hard to present a quality event. If you have not registered, please do so now, as we need to get the headcount in for our meals. 

     This is a beautiful site that I am sure everyone is going to enjoy immensely. If you need registration forms, they are in the last issue of Our Heritage and on this site. You can also contact me at 601-818-1352 and I will mail one to you. It is important that you register as soon as possible. 

     Don't wait until the very last minute. We have "bragged about the food" and need a good headcount. If you have any questions, please call me.

Celeste T. Young, President
