National History Day
Forty-three students from Franklin Middle School traveled to Iowa City today (Friday, March 20th) to compete in National History Day. The competition took place the Old Capitol near the University of Iowa campus.
The theme this year is “leadership and legacy.” All of the students chose a person or a group of people and focused on that theme. Students had the choice of choosing a website, an exhibit, a documentary, a paper, or a performance to enter in the competition.Extensive research was done over the last quarter as part of this PACT class, and the project required extensive bibliographies. Many students’ bibliographies contained over fifty resources. In addition, many students have first-hand interviews as part of their primary sources.
The top two projects in each category will advance to the State Competition in May in Des Moines.
