Seven students from Duluth East and one from Ordean Middle School are advancing to National History Day.

This year’s theme is Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas.

Duluth East’s Leah Coleman is among the students advancing. Her project is on Expanding the Frontier of Climate Action, when James Hansen testified to congress. Coleman earned 1st place as a state group exhibit, qualifying for nationals.

Garin Hackbarth researched FDR’s Fireside Chats and how they formed a frontier in presidential communication. His work earn him second place at state for a group exhibit.

Both students will travel to National History Day in D.C. on June 11-15.

Before they go, they’ll need to fundraise. They’ll showcase their State & National History Day projects at the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum. It’s Tuesday, May 30 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m..

It’s an open house format with two 10 minute performances at 5:50 p.m. and 3:10 p.m..

Donations are appreciated. Cash and checks can be sent to Duluth East High School, with History Day in the memo. The advisor on this project is Ms. Catherine Nachbar.
