HWRHS students take top prizes in two categories in Washington DC!

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.
