National History Day Regional Competition at AHS Museum

A wonderful competition for ages 6th grade - high school, this program encourages students to create a research paper, exhibit, program, video or play based on the 2014 theme "Rights and Responsibilities".  What imagination and hard work went into their projects! Nancy York and Madison Barkley of the AHS Museum co-ordinate NHD across the state for the students and teachers. Pat Faur, Carolee Hess, Karen Swanson and Ruth McLeod, Historical League members, were happy to volunteer as judges March 8 for this Regional event.

We were grouped with other judges to critique the projects and nominate some to advance from the Regional level to State competition, which will be held Saturday, April 5, 2014. Best of luck to these ambitious students who could go on the National Competition in Washington D.C.
