History Day Competition!

It was a great day for ASI at the Hartford Regional History Day Competition! On Saturday, March 24th, more than 20 students participated in the competition held at Two Rivers Magnet Middle School. Students created websites, exhibits, and documentaries on topics ranging from building Washington D.C., the Bosnian War, Rock ‘n Roll Music, Civil Rights, and Historical Women. 

Our students worked very hard researching, creating, and presenting documentaries, websites, and exhibits.  The competition was tough with hundreds of students from other schools participating!
