A Dickinson seventh-grader was a finalist in a state history essay contest held by the Texas General Land Office.
Daniella Moreno, a student at McAdams Junior High School, was one of five statewide finalists in a contest in which students were encouraged to answer the question, "What history in your community is worth saving?"
Moreno wrote about the Galveston seawall. The winning essay was written by a student from Wichita Falls.
The finalists received a Save Texas History backpack, a commemorative plaque, a certificate of appreciation signed by Land Commissioner George P. Bush, and a historic map reproduction from the land office map collection.
