National History Day, this year is the second year that the Royal Valley Middle School has turned National History Day into an elective class for the 7th and 8th grade students. Students take this class with the expectation that will be creating a project that follows under that years topic. This years topic is "Breaking Barriers in History" students projects can be a website, documentary, paper, performance, or exhibit. All students will enter there project into Districts which is held on Saturday, February (29th) and if there project is in top three at districts they move on to state. State Competitions are held on April (18th) at Washburn University in Topeka. If the students win State they will move onto National Competition which will be held from June 14-18, 2020.
Last year Preston Golden took this class and he said, "The class is fun in the class and in joyed it very much but there are boring parts in the beginning where you have to learn the basics of history but everything after that will be fun." He also mentioned that he recommends this class to other students, and that they'll enjoy their time and have fun.
