National History Day Club is a 3 year old club at Central Middle School.
The theme this year was "Taking a stand in History". This past Saturday CMS students of the National History Club competed in the regional competition at Kean University. The group almost doubled in size this year and all 21 members competed! They have been working over the past few months analyzing primary sources and secondary sources in order to create poster board presentations and documentaries. They also had to complete a process paper and an annotated bibliography. The great news...three groups were chosen to continue to compete at the State level this May at William Paterson University.
The groups that will be going to the state level competition are:
Victoria Taco and Eileen Zhang -on their chosen topic of Theodora,
Sumaiya Rehman, Esha Patel, and Laya Neelisetty on their chosen topic on Jhansi Lakshmi Bhai, Ananya Vasireddy, Snigda Nadella, and Shreya Gadikota on their chosen topic of Indira Ghandi.
History Day is not just a day, it is an experience!
Special thanks to Maria Elisa Glatz for the photos and for all her hard work assisting students and proofreading all of their work!
