State finals followed regional competition at the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum in late February. From the Greater Kansas City History Day, four students had emerged to compete at state -- Katie Bullock from Maple Park and Audrey Allen, Sarah Beahm and Claudia St. John from New Mark middle schools.
Approximately 600 students were expected to compete at the National History Day in Missouri competition.
According to the National History Day in Missouri website, "nearly half a million students nationwide in grades 6 to 12 participate in this innovative educational program. They conduct extensive research on a historical subject that they choose and present findings their way by creating documentaries, exhibits, papers, performances or websites."
