1. Fifty years have passed since World War II ended.
2. The Shakespearean festival held each summer in Canada is a must for English literature students.
3. The Office of Judge Smith is located on the third floor of the Johnson building.
4.The American literature students are reading "a Worn Path" by Eudora Welty.
5. Every Spring daffodils and Tulips are among the first flowers to appear in my garden. 6. The President will hold a news conference next Friday in Washington D.C. in the White House.
1 & 2 are correct for capitalization. I would surround "held each summer in Canada" with commas.Office is not a proper noun in sentence 3.The first word of a title, even if it is a small word, is capitalized. Spring and tulips are not proper nouns. I would add a comma after D.C., and change the last "in" to "at".

I agree with my friend Patty -- except for the commas in #2. I think "held each summer in Canada" is defining, not an appositive or parenthetical that can be omitted without loss of meaning. I would not add the commas. Still, if I were the editor here, I would ask the author to clarify her intent. The use of commas, or not, should reflect that intent.
