Approximately 80 students from Kelly Walsh, CY, Poison Spider and Centennial took part in the Region 3 History Day event on December 15, 2018 at Kelly Walsh High School. Twenty-seven students were selected as regional finalists and will go on to represent their school at the State History Day April 14-15 at the University of Wyoming in Laramie.

National History Day is an academic enrichment program for students in grades 6-12. Students selected topics connected to an annual theme and completed their own in-depth research on the topic. This year, the annual theme was “Triumph and Tragedy in History.” Students presented their conclusions by creating museum-style exhibits, media documentaries, research papers, interactive websites and dramatic performances

Region 3 History Day was the first step in a competition cycle that takes students from the regional level to state and national competitions.
