SV students advance to state History Day Competition

April 8, 2020 – Four South View eighth graders have qualified for the state History Day Competition. Ben Sanderson will present his research titled Apollo 11: One Giant Leap, in the Individual Exhibit Board category. Lila Emerson, Sonja Holtey and Kate Hagen will present their research titled Elizabeth Blackwell: Mending Justice in the Group Exhibit Board category.

History Day is an inter-disciplinary research project for students in grades 6-12. Students conduct in-depth resources using primary and secondary sources, and a variety of texts, then write and present their research as a paper, exhibit, documentary, performance or website. To qualify for the state competition, students compete at their schools and in a regional competition.

Normally, the state competition would be held at the University of Minnesota. This year the competition will happen virtually on May 2 with final round entries posted at 5 p.m. on the State History Day website and social media.
