National Qualifiers for National History Day

National History Day is an educational program devoted to the learning of history.  Last fall, students chose a topic related to the annual theme (“Turning Points in History – People, Ideas, Events”). and conducted extensive research using both primary and secondary sources.  After analyzing and drawing conclusions about their topics’ significance in history, they presented their work in an original project.  The district contest was held February 21st at Chadron State College and on April 20th, the state competition was held in Lincoln.  Chadron Middle School had 5 students qualify to compete at the national contest in Washington D.C.
