Feb. 27, 2019:  A group of Bronxville High School freshmen and sophomores who have been conducting extensive historical research over several months have advanced to the 2019 Lower Hudson Valley Regional National History Day Competition, which will be held on March 9 at St. Thomas Aquinas College. They advanced after being named winners in one of several categories at the schoolwide competition on January 30.

The students’ authentic work focused on this year’s National History Day theme, Triumph and Tragedy in History, and is displayed in one of five ways–paper, website, documentary, performance, or exhibit. As part of their research, many of them contacted experts in the field, analyzed the evidence and data they collected, and developed theses that addressed the theme.

At the regional competition, the students will be interviewed by professors and scholars and articulate what they have discovered through their historical research. Winners in that competition will advance to the state competition and ultimately to the national finals.

Congratulations to the following students who have advanced to the regional competition.
