Stacey Trepanier is Grateful for Historical League NHDAZ support

 NHDAZ Thank You letters are the best, this one from teacher Stacey Trepanier:

I wanted to take a moment to let you know that NHD was a positive experience for both me and my students this year. I had four projects that I worked with finish in the top 20, and a junior and senior project take Best in State Awards.
I cannot thank you enough for the League's financial support in helping make this trip a reality for both me and my students. I have attached some pictures of our time in DC!
Thank you again. Stacey Trepanier

Our senior Best in State 1st Place winners were Sunmit Hallur, Michael Makhoul, and Esteban Pierrend for their Senior Group Documentary on Ella Baker: A Pioneer of Grassroots Movements. Their documentary will be featured at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMMAHC) on June 14th with 15 other documentaries.
The Historical League is proud to support all NHDAZ projects. 

National History Day AZ student Thanvi Voruganti is Junior Best in State Winner for documentary

Teacher Stacey Trepanier writes, "Our junior National History Day Best in State Winner was Thanvi for her individual documentary Vietnam: New Frontiers in Media Coverage."
Another way to express it is she is also 20th in the World for individual documentary.

When asked what does NHD mean to you?, Thanvi replied:
"The National History Day process has helped improve my technological ability, my writing skills, and ultimately help me find my voice. New perspectives and experiences have also helped me assess my personal opinions and ultimately embrace history as a tool to help make future decisions. Overall, NHD was a highly enjoyable procedure and truly benefitted me in many ways. "

The Historical League is proud to help sponsor these students in NHDAZ.
