Earlier this year, students and teachers in Fair Hill were invited to participate in the annual Women’s History Essay Contest at Historic Fair Hill, where Lucretia Mott and Harriet Forten Purvis are buried.
Students were invited to reflect on the lives of the these two women who helped make changes in our country and around the world. They were then asked to offer their perspective on the world today and share their own beliefs on how to make the world a better place, reflecting on the contributions of contemporary women. There were numerous submissions, all spoke to the theme of courage and inspiration in historical and contemporary times.
It is our pleasure to name the 2020 winners of the the Historic Fair Hill 2020 Women’s History Essay Contest.

Due to the social distancing that was in place during the latter part of the school year, we were not able to hold our annual in person ceremony. To continue the excitement that is usually generated from the contest and award ceremony, students and parents have been invited to attend the performance about Lucretia Mott and Frederick Douglas scheduled for August 22, 2020 at the Historic Fair Hill Burial Ground. Hope to see you there!
Thank you to all who participated!
