The five high schools in Stone County were asked to participate in “The Great American Ancestor Hunt”. Three of these schools agreed to do the contest. In conjunction with a grant from Table Rock Community Foundation of the Ozarks, we budgeted $100 for each teacher who participated, $100 for the first place winners from each class and $25 runner up prize.
The SCHGS board spent many hours reading and critiquing the over 60 entries we received. The largest of the schools, Reeds Spring, had a lot of outstanding entries. After much deliberation we decided to award a county wide grand prize of $150, which went to Alexis . She was a student from Ms Prior’s class. A two way tie for 1st place went to Harrison Sifford and
