Middle School Students Compete at Delaware History Day

Sanford Middle School students Allie Ganc, Aslyn Merrell, Rafaella Memphis, Nico Mucchetti, and Enzo Encarnacion-Bognar have been selected to participate in Delaware's prestigious History Day competition. Over the past year, they have dedicated themselves to preparing their projects for this event.
The theme for the 2024 contest is "Turning Points in History." Students can work individually or in groups to select a topic that resonates with the annual theme. After conducting in-depth research, they present their findings through exhibits, websites, performances, documentaries, or research papers.
National History Day® (NHD) is a renowned non-profit educational organization headquartered in College Park, Maryland. It offers extensive year-long academic programs that engage over half a million middle and high school students globally in conducting original research on historical topics that intrigue them. Established in 1974, NHD has been at the forefront of enhancing history education, providing educators with professional development opportunities and comprehensive curriculum materials.
The pinnacle of NHD's efforts is the National History Day Contest, which motivates students worldwide to delve into historical research on topics of their choosing. Students begin their journey at local and affiliate levels, with the most outstanding projects advancing to the National Contest at the University of Maryland in College Park.
At the competition, Rafaella Memphis won first place in the Individual Junior Exhibits category, Nico Mucchetti won first place in Individual Junior Documents, and Enzo Encarnacion-Bognar won first place in Junior Papers. These remarkable achievements earned them a spot at the National Contest in June.
