Two students explain their history day project to judges.

Congratulations to Fridley Middle School 8th grade students Karla Hernandez-Galvan, Leah Martin and Megan Vang who participated in the National History Day Minnesota statewide competition on April 20!

Karla created a documentary about representation in America’s West Side Story, Leah created an individual exhibit on the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and Megan participated in a group exhibit board about the response to the Ebola Pandemic in 2014.

“They each worked very hard on their project and should be very proud of themselves,” said Aaron Cuthbert, Fridley Middle School teacher and History Day advisor. “Although they did a great job in their initial presentation to the judges, unfortunately none of them made the final round.”

All FMS 8th grade students presented their projects at the schoolwide competition on February 15. Several students were selected to advance to the regional competition.

Congratulations to Karla, Leah and Megan for your outstanding accomplishments at the statewide competition!
