The Heritage Art, Essay, and Multi-media Contest
The Art, Essay, and Multimedia Contest was the inspiration of Dottie Dallmeyer and her late father, Dr. Joseph Summers Jr, created to foster an interest for local history in students.
In 1994, the Historic City of Jefferson tapped into the existing High School Sketch Day and began offering HCJ’s Art and Essay Contest for middle school and high school students. The Multi-media category was added several years ago. With changing technology and changes in the way today’s students learn, HCJ is in the process of revamping this contest.
The Heritage Days Awards Ceremony, partnered with the Historic Preservation Commission, includes recognition for two additional awards: the Local Landmark Awards and Gregory Stockard Distinguished Service Award.
The 2018 Heritage Day Celebration booklet, complete with information about all winners, is available at http://www.jeffersoncitymo.gov/live_play/history_heritage/heritage_day.php
