All the contestants recited the Gettysburg Address and were well-prepared by their fifth grade teachers Mrs. Kimble and Mrs. Estep; judging was close. All the contestants received a certificate of participation and a Gettysburg Address Pin. John Mace was the winner and was awarded twenty five dollars.
