An awards ceremony for winners of the North Shore Branch of the Association of University Women (AAUW) and Port Washington Public Library (PWPL) essay contest for students grades 6-8. Participants were required to research the suffrage movement and write an essay or poem on the topic. Prizes will be awarded and winners will read their writings to the audience. Our goal is to educate children and parents about the history of the women's movement and what still needs to be achieved. We will commemorate the 100 anniversary of the signing of the NYS Women's Suffrage Law.
