Northshore Students Advance to Washington State History Day Contest

Congratulations to Northshore’s middle and high school students who competed virtually in the 2021 North Puget Sound Regional National History Day Contest. Students who were selected to advance will compete at the Washington State History Day Contest, which will be held virtually from April 14 - May 1. 

Students chose a historical topic related to this year’s theme: Communication in History: The Key to Understanding. Once their topic was selected they conducted primary and secondary research to analyze and draw a conclusion about the significance of their chosen topic. They presented their work at the regional competition in one of five ways: a paper, exhibit, performance, documentary or website. One hundred fifty-nine students participated, 118 entries were submitted and 13 schools were represented at the event. 

Students were judged on two main criteria: historical accuracy and relation to theme, as well as clarity of presentation. Students were also required to follow the rules requirements for each category such as word counts and time restrictions.
