Area students to compete at Northwest Regional History Day
Monday (March 25), the Minot State University History Department will host the Northwest Regional History Day on the first and second floors of Old Main, noon-3 p.m. Junior and senior high school students will compete with displays, papers, performances, websites and documentaries around the theme of "Turning points in history: People. Ideas, Events."The students are divided into junior and senior level, as well as individual and group levels. The junior level comprises grades 6-8. Meanwhile, senior level is grades 9-12. "It is great to see students having fun with history. More than anything, this helps the students with their knowledge about history in various formats from performances to documentaries," said Ernst Pijning, history professor. Winners will advance to the State History Day competition April 5 at the North Dakota Heritage Center in Bismarck. MSU students, faculty and staff and community members are welcome to attend and view the displays. For more information, visit http://history.minotstateu.edu:8080/historyday.
