Madison Elias of Roanoke Rapids authored the winning entry in the National Sons of the American Revolution Sgt. Moses Adams Memorial Middle School Brochure Contest.

The hard work paid off for Madison as recognized by her winner’s certificate and a check for $350.00 from the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. As the winner of the Halifax Resolves Chapter contest she received a check for $100.00 along with a certificate.
