History Day Results
Congratulations to our National History Day students for their diligence, love of research, and academic rigor. They competed at NHD regionals this Saturday, March 18 at Manheim Central High School. All students that placed will move onto the state competition held on May 12 and 13 at Carlisle Area High School.
Although not all of them are coming home with medals, they are coming home ready to dive into more scholarly quests. Our five year NHD advisor and KASD 2012 alumna Carolyn Wasser, said, "Success is having students either discussing changes for states or next year's NHD project. I am so proud of their love for history."
