National History Day Contest Project Descriptions

DRC Sponsor: Alan Lerstrom

Four St. Benedict School Students and their teacher Patty Lein will be attending the National History Day Contest at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland on June 12 and 13. Rotary is providing financial support of their participation. Two students, Rex LaFrentz and Kalin Harman, will present their
projects to the noon Rotary meeting.

The National History Day Contest is the culmination of the annual competition cycle and a celebration of student scholarship. After spending months on project research and preparation, and successfully competing at local and affiliate contests, student scholars are invited to share their work at the National Contest. Each year nearly 3,000 students with their families and teachers gather at the University of Maryland for the week-long National Contest. They come from all fifty United States, the District of Columbia, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, Department of Defense Schools in the Atlantic, and international schools in China, Korea, and elsewhere.
