600 SPPS Students Compete in Regional History Day Contest
Posted by Saint Paul Public Schools on March 21, 2019
Saint Paul Public Schools had an impressive turnout for the Regional History Day Contest at Johnson Senior High School. The assignment for this year’s History Day competition was to tell a story from history that invokes both triumph and tragedy.
Six hundred students in grades 6-12 entered the Regional History Day contest to compete in five categories including exhibit board, website, documentary, live performance and paper.
The top entries advanced to the state competition May 4 at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. The top two entries from the state competition in each category will be invited to compete in the National History Day Contest in College Park, Maryland this summer.

#HistoryDay has the power to do so much for students. They learn skills and showcase them... often times in ways they didn't know they were capable of. #ProudTeacher#MNHD2019 #CHCougars ) pic.twitter.com/EkhFjEWw5x— Mark J. Westpfahl (@MarkJWestpfahl) March 9, 2019
