In an attempt to involve and educate the youth of our township, a poster contest was organized by the Northampton Township Historical Society, Committee for Historic Preservation to recognize National Preservation Week 2001, which was celebrated May 13 through 19. Students in the six Council Rock elementary schools located in Northampton Township were invited to participate. The National Trust Organization in Washington, D.C. designated this observance to create public awareness of the plight of historic buildings across the United States.
Posters were required to emphasize the theme – “Restore, Renew, Rediscover Your Township’s Historic Buildings.” Students were urged to think about why it is important to save our historic buildings and asked to express their ideas on their posters. Judge Warren Hogeland, Police Chief Barry Pilla, and stone artist Larice Burtt selected the winning posters, which were displayed in Northampton Public Library.
Winners in the two categories are: Division A (K-3): 1st Morgan McCredie, Churchville; 2nd Alexandra and JamieLynn Mangold, Richboro; 3rd (tie) Jonathan Zeidler, Hillcrest and Ashley Wright, Hillcrest; Honorable Mention to Kelsey Matlack, Welch. Division B (4-6): 1st Taylor Mangold, Richboro; 2nd Hillary Kotzen, Hillcrest; 3rd (tie) Marissa Illiano, Churchville and Larissa Woloszczuk, Churchville; Honorable Mention to Jaclyn Skoletsky, Hillcrest.
