BEAUFORT COUNTY, GA (WTOC) - We're celebrating America here at WTOC and we're getting our young people involved. We had an essay contest and our Dawn Baker had the honor of meeting the winners.
Out of the more than 250 winners, our top four really had a way of relating a historical figure to modern times.
This week, we went to Beaufort County to recognize one of our outstanding students at Hilton Head Middle School, sixth grader Brody Biggins.
We presented Brody with a Celebrating America T-shirt in front of his classmates . Then we let him read his winning essay where he answered the question, "Which great American in history do you most admire and why?"
