Secretary of State Matt Dunlap Announces Maine History Day Competition

246 Students compete in Augusta for opportunity to participate at National level

 

AUGUSTA – On Wednesday, April 3rd the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine and the University of Maine at Augusta (UMA) will host 246 students from across the state as they take part in Maine History Day, an annual educational competition for Maine students in grades 6 through 12.  An award ceremony will be held at 2:00 pm in Jewett Hall at UMA.

Maine History Day is part of a nationwide program involving all 50 states and the District of Columbia.  Maine State winners may take part in the national competition at the University of Maryland in June. With the support of the Maine Humanities Council, Maine Historical Society, Margaret Chase Smith Library, University of Maine, Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine and historical societies from across the State, we are able to provide this opportunity for Maine students.

Each year students prepare papers, exhibits, documentaries, performances or websites that explore a broad historical theme.  The topic for the 2013 competition is: “Turning Points in History:  People, Ideas, Events.”
