Two Templeton Middle School eighth-graders advanced to state National History Day competition after qualifying March 25 in regional level competition at Carroll University.
Students who competed April 22 in the state junior level division at the University of Wisconsin – Madison were:
- Isabella Sansone for her paper on Oskar Schindler; and
- Connor Gordon for his website about the Pullman Strike of 1894.
Gordon also won the American Labor History Award and finished as an alternate to the national competition in June.
National History Day is an academic enrichment program for students in grades 6-12. Students select topics connected to an annual theme and complete their own in-depth research on the topic. This year the annual theme was “Taking a Stand in History.” Students present their conclusions in documentaries, websites, exhibit boards, performances or papers.
