History Essay Award
This year's winner of the Cambridge Historical Society's Essay Contest is Lydia Beach of Cambridge Village. Lydia chose Cambridge in the Civil War as her topic. She will present her essay on July 11th at CHS's monthly meeting at which time she will be presented with a check for $600.
In addition to the award to a high school senior, the society also gave $150 to the Cambridge Elementary School 3rd grade, the grade in which local history is
taught, to be used to address some aspect of Cambridge history. As they did last year, the teachers chose to take their students on a bus tour of historic sites
within the town, accompanied by historical society members knowledgeable in local history.
