Chino Valley High School students are “Taking a Stand in History” and taking a trip to Arizona State University April 1 to participate at the state level in the National History Day competition. Regionals took place Feb. 25 at Lee Williams High School in Kingman.

The theme, “Taking a Stand in History,” provided 28 students with history projects ranging from the Salem Witch Trials to Title IX. Twenty-one students qualified to go on and will compete at the Arizona competition with a chance to advance to the national competition at the University of Maryland in June.

“All of these students will be improving their entries based on feedback they received from judges at the regional competition, with the goal of placing first or second at the state competition to qualify for National History Day Nationals in June,” said Scott Sloat, CVHS Social Studies teacher.
