National History Day – A Time Tested Experience

Published On: March 7th, 2023

Seventh grade students at Lois S. Hornsby Middle School participated in a competition where they completed an in-depth research project on a topic of their choice. After months of investigation, students created a culminating exhibit, paper, website, documentary, or performance. The competition, known as National History Day, develops valuable skills that will last a lifetime. Congratulations to all our students for a job well done, and best wishes to those moving on to the District 6 Virginia History Day Contest!
