WHS Students headed to National History Day Contest


Posted Date: 04/17/2019

BI1Bailey Fitzwater and Ian Engling, both sophmores at Wheatland High School, competed against other high school students across Wyoming at State History Day on Monday, April 15th at the University of Wyoming.  Bailey and Ian received 1st place in the Group Exhibit division as well receiving the Wyoming State Museum Volunteers monetary award for the "Outstanding Senior Exhibit."  Each year, National History Day selects an overall theme that students must design their chosen presentation around.  This years' theme was "Triumph and Tragedy."  Bailey and Ian discussed multiple topics and ideas prior to selecting theirs.  In order to adequately prepare, they spent approximately 5 months researching and finalizing their presentation.  They received both superior and outstanding marks for their exhibit that was titled "The Power to Influence," the Technological Triumph and Social Tragedy of Television.  Judges where impressed with their unique topic, broad research, board design, and oral presentation.  They both will travel to the University of Maryland during the week of June 9th-13th for National History Day and will compete against other students from across the United States, Puerto Rico, and Guam.
