On the Scene at National History Day: Recap, Winners and Final Thoughts
National History Day was a big success for Maryland students! Students won awards and were finalists in a variety of categories, and the bottom line is that Maryland students continue to be highly competitive at Nationals.
Two students won bronze medals in the paper category—Noah Pritt, a homeschooler from Frederick County and Eric Keen, a homeschooler from Montgomery County. Catherine Troup, who attends the Bullis School in Montgomery County, won $5000 and a special prize from the History Channel for her senior website about the Brooklyn Bridge. There were two outstanding state entries; Noah Donahue of Calvert County in the junior paper category, and Emily Pritt, a homeschooler from Frederick County (and sister of Noah) in the senior paper category. We had six students qualify for finals and one student (Emily Brown of Frederick County) had the honor of having her exhibit on display at the National Museum of American History.
A complete list of winners and awards will be published on our website soon. And be sure to check back to see video clips and photos from National History Day 2010.
