Annual Delaware Day Fourth Grade Competition


Annually, the Department of State and the Office of the Secretary of State host the Delaware Day Fourth Grade Competition.

Signers’ Awards, named in honor of Delaware’s signers – Richard Bassett, Gunning Bedford, Jr., Jacob Broom, John Dickinson, and George Read – are presented to top projects representing five geographic categories: Wilmington, New Castle County, Kent County, Sussex County, and a private school/home school category.
 

Objectives


 

Project Specifications


  1. Students will create four (4) poster boards or foam-core board display panels not greater than 32″ wide or 42″ high.
  2. The four-panel display should be developed so that it can be placed on a table, bulletin board, or four easels. Units may be hinged together.
  3. Each panel should contain a heading identifying the panel question. The Delaware Day Resource Packet contains a copy of panel questions.
  4. Responses to questions require student-generated work in a variety of forms that may include written statements, charts, graphs, tables, cartoons, graphic organizers, original artwork, poetry, or other student produced materials.
  5. Students are encouraged to use the Internet for research but are not allowed to cut, paste, or use research or visuals downloaded from the Internet for display purposes.
