Five Peck Groups Advance to Statewide History Competition

On Saturday, March 3rd, 16 Peck students from Grades 6 to 8 travelled with members of their families and Peck faculty advisors to the Rutgers campus in Camden, NJ to showcase their National History Day projects at the regional NHD competition. These students were hand picked to exhibit in the regional event from the whole of their respective classes that created a wide variety of projects for the annual Peck NHD competition earlier in the year. (Watch a video and read more here about the National History Day Competition at Peck, and the students who were selected to advance to regionals.)
After presentations and Q&A with National History Day judges, five groups of Peck students are moving on to the NHD state competition in May. Regardless of whether or not students advanced to the regional or state competition, the Peck History Department is extremely proud of Peck students’ hard work and efforts.
