FREMONT - Student competitors are set to gather Saturday at Terra State Community College to demonstrate their knowledge of history and its consequences during the annual District 2 Ohio History
Day, sponsored by the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center.
The public can view student projects - exhibits, performances and websites - from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
National History Day is an educational program that strives to make history come alive for students in grades 6-12. History Day events are held at regional, state and national levels. By participating, students are challenged to delve into issues, ideas, people and events of their choosing and then express what they have learned. That expression can take the form of an original performance, a documentary, a research paper, website or exhibit.
This year's theme is Turning Points in History: People, Ideas, Events. The theme was made broad enough to allow selection of a local, state, national or world history topic.
Winners advance to the state contest. State winners then advance to the national level.
