RMS Projects Advance to National History Day Finals

Four Radnor Middle School 8th-graders who participated in the state National History Day contest the weekend of May 7 at the University of Scranton have qualified for the national contest in June. 

The students participated at the regional and state contests, which put their research and presentation skills to the test across multiple formats. All projects centered on the this year's theme of debate and diplomacy.

Malaika Virk and Annie Zhong won second place in the Junior Group Documentary category in the state competition for "Destroying the Divide: How Debate and Diplomacy Influences the Fall of the Berlin Wall." 

Meredith Gelles won second in Junior Individual Website for "Healing Through Repatriation: the Debates and Diplomacy Behind the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act."

Jennifer Ma placed second in Junior Individual Documentary for "Nixon's 1972 Trip to China: Triangulation in the Sino-Soviet-American Relations."

Vivian Bajus placed third in Junior Individual Website for "Debate and Diplomacy: The California Gold Rush's Effect on the Civil War" and will serve as an alternate for the national contest. The school also earned a "2022 Outstanding School in Junior Division" award.

The National History Day National Contest will be held virtually Sunday, June 12-Saturday, June 18.
