NCSS SmartBrief | Mar 23, 2015

Fifth-graders at a Seattle elementary school are researching 16 women in U.S. history as part of the "Women on 20s" campaign, an effort that seeks to depict a woman on the $20 bill by 2020 to mark the centennial of women's voting rights. The students were assigned one of the 16 nominated women and are writing arguments for why their nominee should be chosen for the U.S. currency. KING-TV (Seattle) (03/19)
