Celebrating National History Day: A Local Student Wins Big at National Competition

National History Day is a competition open to 6th through 12th graders in which students will research a historical topic of their choosing throughout the year, to then present their findings to judges at a state and national level.

Michigan high school senior Jack Ducote competed this past year winning for the state of Michigan and taking 7th place at the national competition with his presentation “Rigorous Debate, Diplomatic Failure, and America’s Worst Day: The Road to Pearl Harbor”. Jack is a passionate student of history, sharing with us how he became involved with the National History Day contest and his hopes that his success will inspire others to take up the cause now that he has graduated.
