Congratulations to everyone who participated in National Capital History Day today. It was our biggest (and we think, best) event to date.
Judges had some very difficult decisions to make (some even asked if they could put more than one project through to the semi-finals — they just couldn’t decide which one was best!) in all categories. But they did finally manage to choose their favourites. Here is a list of the students who went home with shiny medals today — and the school that went home with the National Capital History Day Cup.
For the third year, a new school has claimed the National Capital History Day Cup. Photo by Jana Chytilova, National Capital History Day.
