June 12, 2019 Spotilght on Churches R pOrter Page 3C Rock Springs Christian Academy 5th graders par- ticipated in the American History essay contest spon- sored by the Daughters of the American Revolution. This year's topic was about Women's Suffrage, "The Women's Suffrage Cam- paign". The 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed by the United States Congress on June 4,1919 and was ratified on August 18, 1920. This amendment granted all women the right to vote and hold elective office. Many Americans at the time viewed this as a radical change to the U.S. Constitution. Imag- ine you are living in 1919 while the women's suffrage campaigns were having an impact on Americans politically and socially. Stu- dents were asked to discuss the pros and cons of this new amendment the U.S. Congress passed.
