York County Heritage Trust celebrates Articles of Confederation Day Nov. 18

Student Media Awards and a dramatic performance by New Hope Academy Charter School students will be featured during the York County Heritage Trust’s Articles of Confederation Day on Nov. 18.

The event commemorates the adoption of the Articles of Confederation in York on Nov. 15, 1777, according to a news release. The Articles, written by the Second Continental Congress during the American Revolutionary War, served as the precursor to the nation’s Constitution, establishing for the first time the role of the federal government and the rights of American citizens, the release says.

The Heritage Trust event will take place at the Colonial Courthouse, at West Market Street and Pershing Avenue, from 2 to 4 p.m. The event is free, but those who plan to attend should RSVP to 848-1587, ext. 210, so that coordinators know how many people to plan for, the release says.

Students from New Hope Academy Charter School will present a dramatic performance, “Discovering History” before the Student Media Awards will be presented. Students in three grade categories were given a topic and suggested media projects included storyboards, photo stories, video clips, newscasts, songs/raps, debates, and others.

A reception will follow, featuring harpist Brittany Najack and a contest entry showcase.
