Daughters of the American Revolution awards

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)-  Several Craighead County students competed Tuesday at the annual Daughters of the American Revolution.

32 students placed in one of the essay contests or in the Good Citizenship Award.

Jonesboro resident and parent Leslie Williams says her son Jake Henry learned a lot by participating in the competition. "He learned a lot about the Revolutionary War. He learned a lot about this year's topic, which was how it related to the lives of children," Williams said.
