Middle School Students Enter National History Day Contest

April 13, 2017

Middle School Students Enter National History Day Contest - image001Students from Wisdom Lane and Jonas E. Salk middle schools who are members of the National History Day Club entered research papers and visual presentations for the regional competition held at Hofstra University on March 19. Levittown School District initiated the club this past fall to provide middle school students with the opportunity for social studies research, and is directed by teachers Alexander Eichhorn and Robin Insana.

Through membership, the students researched a designated theme chosen for its broad application to state, national or world history and its relevance to ancient or more modern history. This year's theme was "Taking a Stand in History."

In addition, the Cradle of Aviation Museum presented Wisdom Lane Middle School participant Andrew Kiphart the Junior Award for Aviation or Military History for his historical research paper "Bravery in the Face of Discrimination." In his paper, Andrew wrote about the Harlem Hellfighters, an African-American unit who served the United States during World War I.
