Kelly Walsh High School Students Excel at Wyoming State History Day

This year's theme was Turning Points in History, and students researched and analyzed a topic or project of their choice. All participating students who represented KW earned their sword! 

Wyoming History Day, a part of the esteemed National History Day Program administered by the American Heritage Center, is a year-long engagement that encourages students to delve into historical topics of their interest. Students prepare projects based on a new theme each year, which are then evaluated at local and state competitions. The top projects compete at the national level in Washington, D.C., every year, a platform that celebrates academic excellence. 

Congratulations to the Kelly Walsh High School students below, who excelled in this year's Wyoming competition and qualified for the National Competition in Washington, DC, in June!
