H.B. Whitehorne Middle School 7th graders Michael Knothe (left) and Billy Gault (right)  were recently recognized at National History Day. The pair competed in the southern regional district and will go on to the state competition, which will be held May 7 at William Patterson University.

For National History Day, students created exhibits that included documentaries, Web sites and even performances, which were judged over the weekend at Kean University. Billy and Michael’s project was based on the competition’s theme this year, which was “Debate & Diplomacy: Successes, Failures, Consequences”. The students’ exhibit focused on Benjamin Franklin’s role in the country’s battle for independence.

The National History Day contest has run since 1980, and this year more than a half million students participated across America. Students must choose a topic and research it, then craft a presentation to be entered in the competitions. The program ends with a national contest in June, held at the University of Maryland at College Park.
