HCPSS Students Excel at National History Day

July 17th, 2019

At the recent National History Day competition, Elkridge Landing Middle School student Addie Skillman won the gold medal in the category Junior Individual Performance for her project, “Loving V. Virginia: The Stepping Stone for Equality in America.”

Additionally, River Hill High School students Phoebe Chan, Hannah Chan and Joseph Heitzmann, and Lime Kiln Middle School students Ellie Hasegawa and Serena Goyal received honors for their projects.

All Maryland participants at National History Day had won first or second place at the Maryland History Day competition, a culmination of the year-long Maryland History Day program presented by Maryland Humanities. For Maryland History Day, an affiliate of National History Day, students create original documentary films, exhibits, performances, research papers or websites exploring a historical topic of their choice on an annual theme.
