On Saturday, April 22, six seventh and eighth grade students from Loudoun Country Day School traveled to Richmond to participate in the National History Day state-level competition. These students qualified to compete at the state level by finishing in first or second place in their category at the district-level competition that was held in March. The seventh grade students were Julie Cross, Maria McDonald, and Amelia Miller, and the eighth grade students were Danae Flannery, Sophia McMahon, and Noora Samadi. Eighth grade civics teacher and assistant head Mr. Beauchemin attended the competition, as did seventh grade modern world history teacher Mr. Krebs. The National History Day assignment is part of their curricula.
All of these students are to be commended for earning the opportunity to compete at the state level, and they all did an excellent job on Saturday. We congratulate them!
