I received this email from Ms. Kristen Borges who is in Washington DC with our National History Day competition winners:
I am beyond excited to share the results of the 2014 National History Day competition. Our students’ projects went up against projects from all 50 states and 7 countries/territories. This year Hamilton-Wenham took home the TOP prizes in two categories.
Mary Joens 1st place Individual Website
Liz Perrotta and Laura Jennings 2nd place Group Documentary
We also had a Special Award recipient.
Harrison O’Brien Special Award Best Project on Baseball History
I am incredibly proud of all of this year’s competitors. These students demonstrated a true passion for their topics and a commitment to scholarly research. A HUGE thank you to the HWRSD History Department and its amazing teachers who helped get them here. Our students represented Hamilton-Wenham and the state of Massachusetts well.
