CHS Calvert County History Fair Winners

Congratulations to Nathan Maldonado Munoz and Gabrielle Vicmudo, Calvert County History Fair's Most Outstanding Project Award Winners. They won the Senator Thomas V. Mike Miller’s Award for Historical Excellence and will be advancing to the Maryland State Competition on Saturday, May 11th at The University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC).

What is National History Day?

National History Day is a highly regarded academic program for secondary students. Students conduct months of extensive primary and secondary research on historical topics related to an annual theme. This year’s theme was “Triumph & Tragedy in History.” Students present their work through original research papers, websites, exhibits, performances, or documentaries after analyzing and interpreting their sources and drawing conclusions about their topics’ significance in history. Students enter their research products into competitions to advance through school, district, state, and national levels where they are evaluated by professional historians, educators, and community members.

Congratulations to the following Calvert High Winners of the 2019 History Fair. Advancers in each category will represent Calvert County in The Maryland History Day, which will occur on Saturday, May 11, 2019 at UMBC.
