April 28, 2021
All four Dripping Springs ISD middle school students who participated in the state-level National History Day competition placed in the top two in their respective categories and have earned the right to advance to national competition.
National History Day® (NHD) is a non-profit education organization based in College Park, Maryland. NHD offers year-long academic programs that engage more than 500,000 middle- and high-school students around the world annually in conducting original research on historical topics of interest.
All students began the school year by picking a topic that related to the annual theme: “Communication in History: The Key to Understanding” and were judged on the quality of their research, interpretation of primary and secondary sources, and the quality of the presentation of their findings.
The national competition will be held from June 13-19.
