18 Clark Elementary Fifth Graders Advance To Kentucky History Day State Competition
Earning state berths in the Group Exhibit category are duo Aniya Harris and Isabel Roof, duo Shep Esper and Eli Reuter, duo Parker Benningfield and Ben Coltharp, and trio Sam Curran, Henry Stratemeyer, and Bennett Wilke.
Students have conducted research throughout the year on topics of their choice, using both primary and secondary resources. In addition, competitors have written process papers and completed detailed annotated bibliographies. The National History Day organization offers year-long programs that engage over half a million students from around the world in conducting original research on historical topics of interest, using critical thinking skills, and fostering both written and oral communication skills.
The Kentucky History Day / National History Day team is advised by Becky Clark and Debbie Stewart. Students will travel to the University of Kentucky on April 22nd.
