Werntz named Americanism & Government Test state winner

SHS sophomore Tatum Werntz is a State Champion in the American Legion Americanism and Government Test and has earned an all-expense-paid, week-long trip to historic Gettysburg, PA, and the nation’s capital, Washington, DC. The American Legion Department of Ohio sponsors the yearly trip taking the top 3 boys and 3 girls in grades 10-12 for a total of only 18 students statewide.  

The Ohio American Legion Americanism and Government is an opportunity for high school students to evaluate themselves in American government and history through this statewide test program. Over 65,000 students participate annually in this project, which is jointly sponsored by The American Legion Auxiliary.

Werntz is the latest in a long line of state winners at SHS. Since 1970, Sidney High School has had an impressive 37 state winners, with 26 of those winners since 2005, and at least one state winner every year since 2009.
