Hello Washington History Day Fans,
Coming to you live from the 2017 National History Day contest...Tuesday edition.
Today was another grueling day with the heat and humidity while trying to manage some serious campus navigation. Joan and I both crisis-crossed the campus today while cheering on our competing Seniors!
This evening we joined a large Washington State contingent as we all gathered in the Stamp Student Union to cheer on the girls from Evergreen Middle School as they competed in the Junior Group Documentary Finals! They did a great job and we hope to see them bringing home some hardware on Thursday.
As for the Seniors today, we did not have any of our Documentaries or Performances move on to the Final round. They all presented well and we are very proud of their hard work and accomplishments this year. Great job Seniors!
Below is a recap of today's activities along with a few teacher submitted pictures of our Juniors enjoying the D.C. area this week.
Tomorrow we have Ali Jones and Gabrielle Hager presenting their Documentary at the new National Museum of African American History and Culture. The Northshore contingent is meeting with Senator Maria Cantwell. Kelsey Ballard from Cedar Heights Middle School is going to be presenting her Exhibit at the National Museum of American History all day for the world to see. And Joan scored a free ticket to the African American Museum, so she will be spending the day in D.C.'s hottest attraction. Yay Joan!
