Congratulations to Prithvi and Shrihari Nagarajan for earning 1st Place at the National History Day state competition in the senior group website category for their project From “Welga” to “Huelga”: The Farmworkers’ Struggle Against the Grapes of Wrath. Shrihari and Prithvi also earned 1st Place in that category at the Regional NHD contest at MSSU in March.

Congratulations to (clockwise from top left) Johanna Jeyaraj, Sonia Carlson, Ally Jacobs, and Sydney Stamps for earning 2nd Place at the National History Day state competition in the senior group exhibit category for their project Darkness after Dusk: Sundown Towns and Uncovering Racism in America. Johanna, Sonia, Ally, and Sydney also earned 1st Place in that category at the Regional NHD contest at MSSU in March.

The 1st and 2nd Place entries in each category at the state contest go on to represent Missouri at the National History Day national contest, so both of these groups advance to the national competition scheduled for June.
