Event Description:
Young historians will prepare for regional competition at the fifth annual California University of Pennsylvania Primary Sources History Day Competition. The competition is set for 9:15 a.m.-3 p.m. Feb. 13 in the Convocation Center's north conference wing Sponsored by the Library of Congress of Teaching with Primary Sources program in collaboration with the Department of History and Political Science, the event is modeled after the National History Day competition.

This year's contest mirrors the National History Day theme, "Revolution, Reaction, Reform in History."

Participants in junior (grades 6-8) and senior (grades 9-12) divisions will compete in both individual and group projects. Cal U faculty members, students and other community volunteers will judge exhibits, documentaries, websites, performances and historical research papers.

All competitors receive framed certificates, and prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places in both group and individual divisions at both the junior and senior levels. Roughly 150 students from the Belle Vernon Area, Charleroi, Sewickley, Trinity and Uniontown Area school districts will participate.

The regional competition, known as NHD Pitt, will be held March 3-4 at the Senator John Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh for schools in Allegheny, Washington, Greene, Fayette, Westmoreland and Somerset counties.
