This year, 48 Riverview students participated in the local National History Day competition. Despite a challenging year, the students researched thoroughly and developed dynamic projects for the 2021 national theme of Communication in History: The Key to Understanding.
As part of the competition, students are asked to complete extensive historical research as a group or individually to create a website or exhibit, write a historical paper, write and act the script for a performance or compile a documentary.
At the regional competition, 17 Riverview students placed their projects in the top 3 and will now compete at the virtual state finals May 7-10.
The placements are listed below:
Julia Slagle - First Place Individual Performance entitled Communication through Music: How the Printing of Secular Music Altered Society
