DARIEN, Conn. -- Fifth-grade Daughters of the American Revolution Essay contest winners received their certificates and awards during a reception hosted by Darien’s Good Wife’s River Chapter DAR at the Noroton Presbyterian Church Parlor in Darien on Monday.

Parents, grandparents, administrators, teachers and DAR members listened while each winner read their essay. This year’s essay topic was “A Colonial Family’s Reaction to the Stamp Act.”

Children were asked to describe a colonial family’s discussion about the new Stamp Act and what role it played in organizing the colonists against the British King and Parliament.

Winners received gift certificates donated by Darien’s Sylvan Learning Center owner, Gwynne Campbell. The winning local essay will be entered into the CTDAR state essay contest.

Membership in the NSDAR is open to any woman over the age of 18 who can trace her direct lineage to a Patriot who served the cause of American Independence during the Revolutionary War.
