D.C. Everest History Students Advance to State Competition

D.C. Everest History Students Advance to State Competition

Each year, students at D.C. Everest Junior High and D.C. Everest Senior High participate in National History Day — an event that challenges students to craft research projects within a historical theme. This year, the theme was “Taking a Stand in History.” A select number of DCE Junior High and Senior High students competed in the regional History Day event held in Green Bay and were chosen to compete in the State History Day competition that will be hosted in Madison.

Below is a list of students who qualified for State History Day.
