In June, fifty-six Pennsylvania students competed in the National History Day contest held at the University of Maryland, College Park. The students who placed in the top ten nationally in their category are listed below, followed by the top three winners in each category at the state competition in May at Millersville University. Students win the right to compete nationally by placing in the top two at the Pennsylvania contest.
Our congratulations to the students, their teachers and their schools!
