2017- Mark the Encounter
Many thanks to all who participated in our 2017 contest! We had many wonderful entries from across North Carolina. In the end, our panel of judges selected three winners. Our grand prize winner, a young Poplar Springs Elementary School student, received her prize at the 450th Fest on August 5, 2017. In addition to a winning entry, her class submitted videos describing their bookmarks and how they relate to the Joara/Fort San Juan story. Give these excellent reports a watch!
