Raiders Advance to State History Day

March 30, 2021

 National History Day is an annual competition in which students complete a research project connected to a theme. The 2021 theme is "Communication in History: The Key to Understanding." Students had the chance to choose the format their final project would take, such as an exhibit, a website, an essay, or a documentary. 

Of the 31 projects that competed in the Metro Senior Regional Competition, 15 advanced to State, representing 22 students. Two other students were awarded an Honorable Mention. Congratulations to all of the Raiders moving forward in the competition!

Winners of the State competition will be announced in early May.
