Fifteen students from Sublette County competed in the District 7 competition of National History Day on Friday, April 8th.
The competition was held at the Southwest Sublette County Pioneers Senior Citizen Center in Marbleton. District 7 is composed of Sublette, Sweetwater, Lincoln and Uinta counties. Students who entered this year were from Pinedale Middle School and Big Piney High School.
Students who placed will go on to compete in the Wyoming State competition on Monday, April 18th at the University of Wyoming in Laramie. The students who qualify at State will go on to Nationals, which will be held June 12-16, 2011, at the University of Maryland, College Park.
National History Day is an academic program to give elementary and secondary school students an opportunity to choose a historical topic related to a theme, conduct extensive research, and create an original exhibit, performance, documentary or website with an interpretation on that story. Their projects are entered into competitions at local, state and national levels where they are evaluated by professional historians and educators. The theme for 2011 was: "Debate & Diplomacy in History: Success, Failures, Consequences".
