North Students Advance to State History Day Competition

A team of students from Sheboygan North High School have qualified to advance to the state National History Day competition being held in Madison.

National History Day is an academic enrichment program for students. The goal of History Day is to promote the study of history in schools by offering a creative forum in which students can express their scholarship. The History Day program empowers students with research skills, critical thinking skills, and outlets for creative expression, which will enhance their academic abilities in all areas of study.

Working individually or with a partner, students create original research papers, museum style exhibit displays, documentaries, or dramatic performances related to the annual theme. The theme for 2008-2009 is "The Individual in History: Actions and Legacies."

The selected students competed in the local competition, revised their projects and then competed in the Regional Competition in Green Bay. They will take comments from judges and revise their projects for the competition in Madison on May 2.

Competing from North in the State competition are:
  • Casey Campbell, Individual Exhibit -- Miep Gies, Light Up the Darkness
  • Cassie Shultz and Erin Johnson, Group Exhibit -- Shiro Ishii, The Diabolical Mind Behind Unit 731
  • Lauren Ensor, Individual Performance -- Anne Boleyn, The Malicious Snake Who Sought Ambition Above All
  • Harindi Amithirigala and Kelsey Obremski, Group Documentary -- Steve Biko
