Area Students Qualify for National History Day in Iowa

History Day 2012: Revolution, Reaction, Reform in History

Congratulations State Qualifiers!
GPAEA History Day 2012

National History Day is the nation’s leading program for history education in the schools.  On March 20, 2012 students from 17 districts and 2 non-public participated in Great Prairie AEA’s History Day contest held at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center.  Students researched history topics of their choice related to the theme “Revolution, Reaction, Reform in History”.  Students worked as individuals and in groups to create exhibits, documentaries, performances, historical papers and websites. Area individuals volunteered their time to evaluate student entries and advance them to the state contest.

Congratulations to the following state qualifiers for their hard work as these students will represent GPAEA at the “National History Day in Iowa” contest on April 30, 2012 (Senior & Youth Division) and May 7, 2012 (Junior Division) at the State Historical Society of Iowa in Des Moines.
