History Day Club Update: The Hartford Regional Contest

By: Andrew Maglio

Over the past weekend (March 21st and 22nd), Conard’s History Day club had their regional contest (albeit virtually). History Day is a year long competition where student’s research any historical topic of their choosing, using the annual theme as a guide -this year was “breaking barriers”- and in the spring present their project to judges. The three rounds are: regional, state, and national (some other countries compete at this level, too).

 

The results were as follows:

 

1st Place- Senior Individual Exhibit: Natalie Gavalis for her entry “A Woman in Business”

 

1st Place- Senior Individual Documentary: Andrew Maglio for his entry “The Mother of Nature: Rachel Carson and the Groundbreaking Publication of ‘Silent Spring’”

1st Place- Senior Individual Documentary: Andrew Maglio for his entry “The Mother of Nature: Rachel Carson and the Groundbreaking Publication of ‘Silent Spring’”

2nd Place- Senior Individual Performance: Lindsay Moynihan for her entry “Two Letters, One Syllable: Jeannette Rankin Breaks the Barrier of Dissent”

2nd Place- Senior Individual Documentary: Kevin Shreenauth for his entry “Gideon v Wainwright: Breaking the Judicial Barrier of the United States”

3rd Place- Senior Individual Paper: Ryan Lafferty for his entry “An Amalgamation of Neoliberalism and Multilateralism: Restructuring the Global Financial Order

Everyone from Conard who competed at Hartford placed in the top three, and thus, was invited to compete (virtually) at the state contest scheduled for May 2nd. Conard has generally been very successful at History Day, rooted in Conard’s (and Sedgwick’s) commitment to this event. This year’s regional contest was arguably one of Conard’s most successful ever.
