National History Day needs your help (or that of your students)

On Saturday, April 4, more than 300 area middle and high school students will come to campus to compete in the Northeastern Wisconsin Regional competition of National History Day. They will be showcasing projects they have created based on research conducted throughout the school year. Topics range from the creator of golf to Clara Barton; from Malcolm X to Gloria Steinem; from Neil Armstrong to Ada Deer. Categories include: exhibits, web sites, documentaries, performances, and papers. Judges are still needed to assess projects, and rank the best ones to move on to the State competition in Madison. You need not know anything about history to participate; training and free meals are provided.

If you personally are unable to commit to volunteering, this would be an excellent service project for students. We would be grateful if instructors could announce this opportunity to their classes, and even offer extra credit if possible. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Deb Anderson or Jean Wentz via email at The volunteer registration form is available at
