Students at William S. Cohen participated in the Northern Regional National History Day competition at John Bapst High School this month. This year’s topic theme was Triumph and Tragedy in History. The student’s projects required a great deal of research, reading, writing, higher-order thinking, organization, and creativity. Projects in both individual and group categories included research papers, poster-board exhibits, websites, documentary films, and dramatic performances. Seven Cohen participants earned finalist ribbons and will be moving on to the state-level competition at the University of Maine on April 27th. Congratulations to all students for their participation and hard work!
