San Juan Islands Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution celebrated their thirty-third year anniversary with a luncheon honoring the 2012 essay contest winner.

Friday Harbor Middle School eighth grader, Kyle Jangard was honored at the DAR luncheon on April 17.


For his prize-winning essay, Kyle received a certificate and a check for $100, in addition to a medal for history achievement.

The topic of the essay was “Young America Takes a Stand: The War of 1812”. Open to all students in grades 5-8, the annual contest is sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution San Juan Islands chapter. The topic varies from year to year. This year’s topic is in honor of the 100th anniversary of the War of 1812, a turning point in American History.

The Jangard family was well-represented at the luncheon. Kyle’s parents, Diana and Eric Jangard and his grandmother, Kay Erickson attended to see him receive his award. Kyle’s award winning essay was forwarded to the state DAR for judging at the next level of the essay contest.
