(Neb.)-Chadron Students Advance To National History Day
(Chadron)-Several Chadron students recently qualified for the National History Day Competition after competing at the State Competition in Lincoln. National History Day is an educational program devoted to the learning history.
The competition for the local students this year began in the fall, when students chose a topic related to the annual theme, which this year was “Turning Points In History – People, Ideas, Events.” They then conducted extensive research using both primary and secondary sources.
The district contest was held at Chadron State College in February, with several students advancing to the State Competition, which was held April 20. Those advancing to state were Corbin Johnson and Spencer Margetts, Jadyn McCartney, Kaci Waugh and Mallory Rhembrandt, Greta Welch and Alison Gardner, Mumbi Mwaura, and Hunter Hawk.
Five students qualified to move on to the National contest to be held in Washington DC beginning June 8. Students from Chadron who competed at the state level and were selected to go on to the national competition are Walt Mays, Beau Jersild, Drew Jersild, Cody Madsen, and Veronica Parish.
