Ernest Ward Students Explore Past With National History Day Projects

January 31, 2013

History came alive through the eyes of students at Ernest Ward Middle School recently as they displayed weeks of work on projects for National History Day.

The History Fair in the school’s gym capped off a project in which EWMS students were required to do research into a topic. The research was presented in exhibit form, much like the typical science fair, or as a drama or web presentation. Students complete projects either individually or in teams.

This was the fourth year Ernest Ward has participated in the national program, with the top projects from Ernest Ward headed next to a district competition.  Winners included:
