SUNY Fredonia & History Day
For the last 3 years, SUNY Fredonia’s History Department has hosted the Western Southern Regional Tier competition for History Day. Middle school and high school students, mentored by their teachers and parents, have created exhibits, performances, papers, and documentaries that examined various people and events. We were very pleased with the hard work students put into their projects last year, and we are glad to report that Haleigh Hoebener, a Westfield Academy and Central School student, took her exhibit, “Television: Turning on America” to the national competition!
Haileigh Hoebener with her exhibit at the regional History Day competition. The suggestions that Haileigh received from SUNY Fredonia’s History faculty and student judges helped her to improve the project for the state and, ultimately, the national competition.
Each year, a theme gives students some direction: this year’s theme is Debate & Diplomacy: Successes, Failures, Consequences. There are so many ways to be involved in History Day. Whether you are a student, teacher, parent, college student, professor, or interested community member, we would be pleased to have you participate.
