When State Rep. Harry Readshaw extended the Monument Challenge program to schools, he did so knowing that there would be interest among our students, teachers and administrators to answer the call to help preserve Pennsylvania's monuments on the Gettysburg Battlefield.   That call has been answered by students from all areas of the state.   Below is an honor roll of those schools that have already submitted hard-earned funds to the project, as well as links to other schools that are in the process of raising funds to help ensure that these Icons of Freedom will be well maintained for future generations.
