Followers of this blog know that I love National History Day. National History Day challenges teens to investigate historical questions and present their findings in papers, websites, exhibits, performances, and documentaries. Students discuss their work with interested adults as they strive to rise above the competition first at the school, then at the district, state, and national levels. All this depends on interested individuals offering to talk to these young historians. Will you show them you care about their learning?
The Southwest Washington History Day Competition will be held Saturday, February 25 at Wy’East Middle School in Vancouver. Judge orientation will begin at 8:00. Preliminary round judging will conclude by 1:00; if you’re available to stay for the finals round, you’ll be done by 4:30. Clock hours will be provided.
If you’re able to join us to judge, please email me. Whether or not you can join us, please spread the word!
