Henson Award Winner!

This is the poster presentation Jack did (ok, with a little help from mom). On the left are shots from Arlington cemetery and a rubbing from the tombstone.

Jack drew Arctic animals on the right-- and listed the important things learned from the Inuits. In the center Jack drew Mr. Henson and the flag-- and there are lists of highlights of his life, major
awards and ways that Maryland has honored Matthew Henson (Jack's school is in Maryland).

Jack is in third grade at Washington Episcopal School in Bethesda, Maryland. His teacher, Mrs. J. Thornton, organized a "Black Facts Museum" . Everyone in the two third grade classes picked an important African American, did a poster, dressed like that person, and gave a 2 minute speech about that person. Jack really enjoyed learning
about Matthew Henson.

Hope you enjoy the photos.
