Months of research and hard work paid off April 17 for the 100 students and two teachers who won awards at the Tennessee History Day competition.
The winners are eligible to represent Tennessee at the National History Day competition, which will be held in College Park, Maryland June 13-17. The first- and second-place finishers automatically qualify for the nationals. Third-place finishers are eligible to attend if the first- or second-place finishers in their categories can’t attend.
Tennessee History Day, which was held at the Legislative Plaza, the Tennessee State Museum and the Nashville Public Library, attracted more than 200 students from across the state. The participants were all award winners from district competitions held in Memphis, Murfreesboro, Knoxville and Chattanooga.
The competition was coordinated by the Tennessee Historical Society with sponsorship provided by Humanities Tennessee and the Tennessee Department of State. Ad
