Cobras on the Move: To History Day and Science Fair

 2012 Windward District History Day: "Revolution, Reaction, and Reform in History" Thirteen 8th grade King students will be taking their projects to the Windward District History Day on February 18, 2012, on the King campus. Students from Windward elementary, intermediate, and high schools will be presenting their projects for evaluation by History Day judges. Selected projects will move on to the Hawaii History Day State competition in April 2012. History Day, sponsored by the Hawaii Council for the Humanities, is an education program that promotes the teaching and learning of history in the schools. A yearly theme sets the course for students to select a topic, conduct research, interview sources, write, revise and produce their project. Projects can be presented in a display, performance, documentary, essay or web-site format. The National History Day competition is held at the University of Maryland in June 2012. Windward districts students have consistently participated in the National History Day competitions. King participants are guided by Ms. Susan Sugitani, 8th grade Social Studies teacher. Good luck to our Cobras!
