The office received over 100 entries.

What: Congressman Wilson will recognize Zachary Valsecchi as the winner of the First Annual Second Congressional District Elementary School Challenge.  Zachary’s entry focused on the significance of the “Best Friend of Charleston,” America’s first regularly scheduled passenger service train that traveled to Charleston, South Carolina, in the 1830’s.

Where: Round Top Elementary School – 449 Rimer Pond Road, Blythewood, SC 29016

Why: As a parent to four boys and the husband to a retired teacher, Congressman Joe Wilson knows that a firm education ensures future success.  By conducting this competition, the Congressman gave third graders an opportunity to share what they had learned throughout the year studying the Palmetto State’s unique history.
