History Day At Peru State College
On Wednesday, March 3, Peru State College hosted the 26th Annual History Day: "Innovations in History: Impact and Change."
This year's gathering attracted 259 Junior High and High School students and featured 151 entries from 11 school districts and 17 teachers.
The 259 students topped last year's record of 250 when the college celebrated the event's 25th Anniversary at Peru State College.
This year's even included 50 judges and 27 judges' assistants and brought back to Peru State former students, staff members, and teachers. All helped to make this year's event another wonderful success.
The theme for 2011 is: "Debate & Diplomacy: Successes, Failures, Consequences." Next year's District Contest falls on Wednesday, March 2, 2011.
I loaded quite a few photographs, including shots of all the prize winners.
Special thanks to PSC President Dan Hanson, for he had to endure my taking multiple shots of all the prize winners--he probably saw dots for hours after awarding the last medal.
