Emily, one of our PolishOrigins members James granddaughter, got a 2nd place in her school Social Studies Fair Project Very Happy .

James, who played a great part in this work, wrote:

"She was very happy when she learned she won 2nd place, but not so happy after she learned she would have to do her oral presentation again, at the district level. She opened her presentation with " Dzien dobry " to the judges, who asked her what that ment, which she replied " good morning or good day ". She thought that was cool, to speak Polish to them. Wink)

Emily did learn alot about the history of half of her forefathers, which I thought was cool. Wink)"

Good luck Emily in the next level Exclamation

Thanks, Shellie, for your kind words and thoughts.
Emily is a sweetheart. She is 9 yrs old, going on 30. She is the " Big Sister " , to 2 other sisters ( 7 + 5 ) and a younger brother ( 3 11/12 ), and she acts like a second Mom to them.

She goes to District later this month. I'll update at that time.

She thinks it is really cool to be on a web site , that is viewed by people all over the world.

Dear Emily,

Congratulations on your project! I was so impressed to see such a young lady so interested in Poland. Your presentation looks very nice - no wonder the judges gave you such a high score. Thank you for educating your peers about our ancestral land. It is because of smart young people like you that Poland will continue to be "Alive Again."

Good Luck at the next level!
Your friend Shellie in Georgia.
