The Washington Workshops Foundation is pleased to recognize and congratulate the 2017 Essay Contest Scholars for the annual National Society of the Colonial Dames of America (NSCDA) Essay Contest. For the past 39 years the NSCDA has generously underwritten a national essay contest with the mission of encouraging students from across the United States to gain a greater understanding of our history, a greater understanding of our three branches of government and the importance of being engaged citizens in our Democracy. The Washington Workshops Foundation would also like to thank you NSCDA for their generous support and our 39 year partnership and commitment to the future leaders of America. Congratulations to all of the NSCDA Scholars and Legacy Students! Our entire team look forward to welcoming you to Our Nation’s Capital in June!
