FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The Indiana Historical Society and Ivy Tech Fort Wayne hosted National History Day Saturday morning.
It's a regional competition for 4th-12th graders to showcase history projects of their choice. Students presented posters, video documentaries, performances, and websites.
The projects are judged by volunteers.
Some students have the chance to move on to a state competition, and then to a larger competition in Maryland in June.
"It is so important, especially in today's age, for kids to be looking at history, because it gives them a better idea of how the world got to where we are today," said Bethany Hrachovec. "It helps them better identify trends in history where they can see why the world is shaped the way it is, why discoveries are made, and better appreciate some of the things they may take advantage of in their day to day lives."
This is the second year Ivy Tech Fort Wayne has hosted the event.
