Multiple Students Advance To National History Day Competition

A group of Lausanne students showcased their historical knowledge recently when they participated in The Tennessee State History Day contest. Several Senior Division projects advanced to the National History Day competition!

Students had a prominent showing at the regionals back in march, advancing them to April's state-level competition. The Lynx who moved on to the National History Day competition will compete virtually in June. This year's theme is Communication in History: The Key to Understanding.

History Day is a year-long academic program focused on historical research, interpretation and creative expression for Middle School and High School students. Students become writers, filmmakers, web designers, playwrights, and artists in their effort to create unique contemporary presentations of history through the process.
