27 Students advance to NHD state finals

Twenty-seven Westminster students are among the finalists of the Georgia National History Day regional competition at Augusta University. Students from several local schools in the CSRA participated on Saturday, March 3, with all finalists advancing to the state contest on April 21 at Mercer University.

National History Day in Georgia is a program of Georgia Humanities and LaGrange College. The purpose of the program is to encourage middle and high school students to engage more deeply in the historical process through research and presentation of that research along with an analysis. Students choose both their subject matter and how they plan to present their research: documentary, exhibition, paper, performance or website.

Congratulations to these Westminster finalists:
