National History Day 2021 winners at FHS

The National history Day was held at the Faith School in February. 
The top three finishers at Faith’s local competition qualify to compete at the regional competition in Buffalo, SD, March 3, 2021. 
This year’s theme is “Communication in History: The Key to Understanding.” The National History Day theme is meant to help students direct their research. Students must make a connection between the theme and their topic. The themes that are chosen are broad, allowing students to research topics on all levels from local history to ancient history. In order to draw a connection to the theme, students must understand the historical significance of their topic and answer questions about time, place, and context. Understanding the impact and significance of the topic will help define why the topic is important and draw this connection to the theme.
Students start working on their displays well in advance of the presentation day.  The students pictured above placed in the top 3 of their chosen category for the FHS National History Day competition. These students have qualified to compete at the regional competition in Buffalo, SD, March 3rd, 2021.
