In honor of Women’s History month each year, Austin’s American Association of University Women (AAUW) branch sponsors a Women’s History project contest for American History students at Austin High School.

The winners of this contest are usually honored and presented with a cash award at an all-school assembly. This year’s assembly had to be canceled because of the March 25 snowstorm, making it impossible for our speaker to arrive.

Instead, awards were presented by teacher Dennis Schwab in his classroom.
