Eighty-one middle-and high-school students who participated in Saturday’s (April 5) National History Day regional competition will advance to the state contest May 3 in Madison. As we told you here before, this was a record year for the Northeast Wisconsin regional, hosted at the Kress Events Center. Nearly 440 students from 24 schools in eight area districts presented a total of 259 projects on the theme “Rights and Responsibilities in History” during the daylong event. “The day was a huge success, with many positive comments about the campus and the experience in general,” said coordinator and University archivist Deb Anderson. “Local leaders including Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt and State Senators Dave Hansen and Robert Cowles also were on hand to show their support for this event.” The competition also relies on the efforts of some 120 volunteers, Anderson added.
