Whether he was standing up to his adversaries or to members of his own political party, our sixteenth president was never afraid to make the difficult choice. His story, documented in the new movie “Lincoln” (in theaters November 9) is one of leadership, strength and courage in the face of opposition from almost everyone around him. Indeed, without Abraham Lincoln, the Thirteenth Amendment abolishing slavery may never have passed.
That’s why we asked high school students around the country to create a Pinterest board showing how Lincoln’s spirit of bravery lives on even today. The contest entries were then reviewed by a merit panel of educators who selected 10 finalists. The grand prize winner earned a class trip to Washington DC and a private screening of “Lincoln.” We invite you to explore these moving entries with your students today.
