Which historical woman should be featured on the $10 bill?
Emma Motelson, Andrew Apaza and Joyce Ann Lee were the three Great Neck Library finalists in the Woman on the New $10 Bill Writing Contest sponsored by The American Association of University Women (North Shore Branch), Great Neck Library and Shelter Rock Public Library.
To commemorate 100 years since the passage of the 19th Amendment, which secured women’s right to vote, the U.S. Treasury announced plans to put a woman on the $10 bill in 2020. For the writing competition, the students were asked to select an American woman who made outstanding contributions to our country and explain why she would be a good choice for the $10 bill. Some of the influential women that the students chose to write about included Alice Paul, Mary Edwards Walker and Eleanor Roosevelt.
The three finalists in the Shelter Rock Public Library competition were Jennifer Kim, Christopher Piccirillo and Lawson Everitt.
