National History Day needs you!
On Saturday, April 10, more 350 area middle and high school students will come to campus to compete in the Northeastern Wisconsin Regional competition of National History Day. They’ll showcase projects they have created based on research conducted throughout the school year. Topics range from basketball to the discovery of penicillin, planned communities to the invention of the typewriter, Title IX to indoor plumbing. Categories include exhibits, websites, 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. Once again, organizers say they would be grateful if instructors could announce this opportunity to their classes, and perhaps offer extra credit if applicable. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Deb Anderson or Jean Wentz of the Cofrin Library via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The volunteer registration form is available at: www.uwgb.edu/nationalhistoryday.
