Duluth East students advance to National History Day

Two Duluth East Students moving on to National History Day

Two Duluth East students are moving on to National History Day competition in Washington D.C.

Duluth East students will be showcasing their State & National History Day projects as a fundraiser to help fund the trip to the National Competition held in Washington D.C. on June 9-13.

Two students from East High School have been selected to advance, including Anna Keto whose topic is “A Turning Point in Feminist Media’ and Margaret Johnson who researched a A Turning Point in Native American Spirituality: The American Indian Religious Freedom Act of 1978.

There is a less than 1% chance for projects to be chosen for this level.

In collaboration with the Karpeles Manuscript Museum the public is invited to preview student projects, learn about some amazing history topic, and tour the the museum. It’s Tuesday, May 14 from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m..

Donations are appreciated. Cash and checks can be sent to Duluth East High School. History Day is in the memo.

This year’s project theme is Turning Points in History. It also marks 50 years of History Day Competitions.

All secondary schools in ISD 709 participated in History Day at the state level this year.
