5 Headed to College Park, Maryland
Eleven Elkhorn Middle School Students came out of Regional Junior Division of the National History Day Competition to compete at the State level at the University of Kentucky April 24th and 25th. Five of these students were judged in the top two of their categories and are moving on to National Competition at College Park, Maryland in June. There will only be 18 students representing the State in the Junior Division. Elkhorn is proud that 5 of those include our students. Julia Blackburn (1st in Individual Exhibit), Caitlyn Barnes (2nd in Individual Exhibit), Tre Taylor (2nd place individual performance), Sasha Sairajeev and Stephen Parks Mason (2nd place group web design). National History Day is a year-long academic program focused on historical research, interpretation and creative expression. Each year, National History Day selects a theme for the students to complete research about. This year's theme was Leadership and Legacy. By participating in this program, students become filmmakers, playwrights, web designers, writers, and artists as they create their interpretation of the theme.
