There’s no question the Covid-19 pandemic has been an historic event, so it makes perfect sense that the Daniel Island Historical Society’s 2nd Annual Student Essay Contest focuses on the pandemic and its impact, now, and for the future.
The organization’s competition is open to students in grades 9-12, living in or attending high school in the 29492 zip code. This year’s participants are being asked to deal with the following issues:
- How has the experience of the COVID-19 pandemic impacted life on Daniel Island in the past year?
- What inspiration can you draw from American history (from specific events or time periods) that might teach us about the power of perseverance through hardship?
- How do you imagine your experience — and our collective experience of COVID-19 — will be understood by future historians?
- What insights about life in the COVID-19 pandemic would you like to share with these future historians now?
