Students in grades 6-12 had been working on the exhibits, documentaries, websites, and performances with the theme, "Conflict & Compromise in History."

Gabe Reese, Minnesota Historical Society Temporary Program Associate, says the event is also for students to learn more about different historical topics.

"History Day is really for students, the ability to research what they want to research," said Reese. "It really gives them the ability to delve into their own history, the history where they live in, or something that they've always been interested in, and feel like history class hasn't taught them or given them the ability to research," he said.  

Winners at regionals will advance to State History Day on Saturday, April 28. State winners are then eligible to compete at National History Day in Washington, D.C. in June.
