Students from Molokai High School and Middle School will showcase and present their History Day projects today from 8 am. till noon at the high school.
Over 40 student projects will be on display for judging. History Day judges will determine which projects qualify for the state competition at Windward Community College on April 20.
This year’s Hawaii History Day theme is “Turning Points in History: People, Ideas, Events.”
Hawaii History Day, an affiliate of National History Day and a program of the Hawaii Council for the Humanities, is a yearlong history education program that invigorates the teaching and learning of history for students in grades 4-12. Students choose a topic that relates to the annual theme, research the topic, and develop their research into one of five categories: essay, exhibit, documentary, performance or website.
History Day culminates in the presentation and evaluation of these projects at district, state, and national levels. Visit http://hi.nhd.org for more information.
Results and photos from today’s event will be posted on The Molokai News later this week.
