Three Ouachita Parish students recently competed in the Monroe Regional National History Day competition held at the Chennault Museum. National History Day (NHD) is a nonprofit organization that creates opportunities for teachers and students to engage in historical research. Students in middle and high school learn history by selecting topics of interest and launching into year-long research projects. We are proud to announce these three students placed first in their categories in regional competition and will be going forward to compete in the Louisiana State National History Day Competition, with the opportunity to advance to nationals in Maryland this summer! Congratulations and best of luck!
