Sterling Center Students Receive National Recognition for History Day Projects
Two Sterling Center students recently received top honors for their history project during the National History Day National Contest at the University of Maryland.
Rising eighth graders Vignesh Rajmohan and Paul Windsor were finalists for their Junior Group Exhibit The Sky’s the Limit...Or Is It?, a three-dimensional kiosk display focusing on the Wright Brothers.
The South Carolina NHD Delegation consisted of sixty-two middle and high school age students who created projects related to this year’s theme: Turning Points in History: People, Ideas, Events. At the start of each school year nearly 5,000 students across the Palmetto State are exposed to the National History Day Program which encourages students to immerse themselves in original research, projects and presentation skills.
NHD is a year-long academic program for elementary and secondary school students focused on the teaching and learning of history. The South Carolina Archives and History Foundation manages the National History Day Program in South Carolina.
