Sierra’s eighth grade students are presented their National History Day projects to the school.

All of team Hawk, all of team Phoenix and Falcons advanced students participated in this years National History Day. Students chose an important topic from history that matched this years theme of triumph and tragedy. Large amounts of research was done on these projects, and once the research had finished students had to build their projects. They had the choice between five different types of projects: Exhibit, website, documentary, paper and performance. Once all of the required pieces of the project were done all students presented on February 11th to any students and parents that wanted to come.

“My project was the Triangle Shirtwaist Coat Factory Fire, and I thought it was really interesting how it influenced a lot of future workplace safety,” Bridgett Boguth from team Hawk said.

Team Hawk began their projects on the second day of school and other teams began later in the year. All of the students met at the school from 4:30 to 7:00 to present their projects. Papers were set up in the cafeteria, exhibits were in the gym, performances were in the CLC and Websites and Documentaries were in the LMC.

“It was a lot of hard work but our finished project showed all of our effort. Sean Kirkpatrick from team Hawk said.

Five projects from each category will be moving on to regionals, and those students will be announced later this week.
