June 17th, 2021

A project by two Howard High School students is featured in the 2021 Virtual Exhibit Showcase–presented by National History Day, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and the Smithsonian Learning Lab–through June 29, 2021.

Gitanjali Raghava and Anna Chalupa’s exhibit, “The Attica Prison Riot of 1971: Truth from Behind the Bars,” is part of the online showcase of 51 exhibits, researched by middle and high school students competing in the 2021 National History Day competition.

The students’ project was created with the guidance of Howard High School teacher Mary Saha.
