Tennessee students to compete in History Day

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE (AP) - History is the subject of a big competition in Nashville scheduled for this weekend.

According to the Tennessee Secretary of State's office, about 450 students in grades six through 12 from public, private and home schools will be participating in History Day on Saturday.

Competitors will be judged on the quality of projects they have submitted on a variety of history-related themes.

The top competitors will advance to the national finals in June in College Park, Md.

To earn their spots at Tennessee History Day, students had to present projects that won medals at one of six district competitions held around the state.

In all, more than 7,000 Tennessee students took part in some level of History Day competition this year.
