Name the Eagle Contest

Eagle Monument

A very successful “Name the Eagle” contest was just completed to choose a name for the Eagle mounted at the entrance to the memorial. Third, fourth and fifth graders at Weisenberg and Northwestern elementary schools submitted eight-one names for the eagle. They were asked to research ideas, with their parents and teachers, for names that have a connection with military, history and patriotism.

The winning name, chosen by the Memorial Committee members is “FREEDOM” submitted by Harper Slaski (5th grade Northwestern) and Mrs. O’Niel’s 3rd grade class (Weisenberg). Please see the attached document for second and third place winners and their names. This turned out to be a very successful and well received event that connected our elementary students, teachers and parents to this community project. The energy and excitement from the students was a joy to see.
