Westminster Students Moving on to State in 2023 National History Day Competition

Westminster Schools of Augusta is pleased to announce that more than 20 students are moving on to the state competition in the 2023 National History Day Competition. This year's theme was "Frontiers in History, People, Places, Ideas." Students were allowed to choose from several categories of projects ranging from research papers and presentations, to documentaries, website design, or even a student scripted performance. The grade 7 and 8 students presented their works before their peers. 

After presenting to their peers, the students submitted their work to the regional contest. The following students won their regional competition and are moving on to the state contest. Congratulations, Wildcats!
