History Day Nationals 2015 Begins!

Welcome to the 2015 National Contest!

Most of Team Washington’s students, teachers, and families have now arrived here at the National Contest in College Park, Maryland. Around 50 teachers, parents, siblings, and friends have come along to support Washington State’s 61 National Finalists as they compete this year.

Today, most students made the short trip from campus into Washington, D.C. to enjoy attractions like the Smithsonian museums, Capitol Hill, the White House, the National Archives, and the Lincoln Memorial.

Exhibit students got ready for the contest by assembling their exhibit boards in the Exhibit Hall this morning. Exhibit judging takes place on Monday and Tuesday.
