For the second year in a row Royal Valley Middle School students qualified for the National History Day competition in Washington, D.C. According to the National History Day website, “The National Contest, built around an annual theme, is the final stage of a series of contests at local and state/affiliate levels. Students begin their journey by presenting their projects in classrooms, schools, and districts around the world. Top entries are invited to the state/affiliate level contests. The top two entries in every category at the state/affiliate level are then invited to the National Contest.” Last year, seventh-grader Lilly Rooks was state champion in the Junior Individual Documentary category. This year two groups from Royal Valley Middle School qualified for the national competition. In the Junior Group Documentary category, Stella Rector and Mae Joslin placed first at state with their Junior Group Documentary, Native Americans Taking a Stand in History. Additionally, Ivy Fink and Karlie Albright placed second in the state with their Junior Group Exhibit, Samuel J. Crumbine: Taking a Stand for Your Health. While titled a “National” competition, students from around the world compete. Stella and Mae competed against a group from South Korea and a group from Singapore.
In addition, to the competition National History Day is an opportunity for students to interact and meet students from around the world. The girls met students from China, Singapore, Japan, as well as many states and territories of the US. These students were also given the opportunity to take in many of the tourist sites associated with Washington, D.C. Thanks to Senator Jerry Moran the girls were given a wonderful tour of the US Capitol, including a ride on the Congressional Trolley. Some of the Historic sites toured included the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian, the new National Museum of African American History and Culture, Mount Vernon, the National Archives, and the Holocaust Museum. On the more cultural side the girls experienced “U” street and Ben’s Chili Bowl, the National Mall, and Ebbit’s Grill.
Although neither group medaled they competed well and represented their State and County with distinction. Competing at National History Day and touring the Nations Capital is an experience not to be forgotten. Congratulations, Stella, Mae, Ivy, and Karlie!
If you are interested in the next Europe trip, it will take place during spring break of March 2019 and they will be traveling to Greece! Go to the website eftours.com and enter the tour group number - 2001583KJ

It is important to do this from EACH devise you wish to receive text messages on--cell phone, work cell phone, etc.
We are reaching out to everyone in advance of the initial enrollment phase. If you send "Y" or "yes" to 67587 now, you will not receive the mass text or email that will go out to the entire district on June 19 asking every person to opt-in for text messages. You will be ahead of the game!
