National History Day MN area High school and middle school students present history research projects at bemidji state university

On March 6, students from eight area high schools visited Bemidji State University to present the results of their research into historical events as part of National History Day MN, sponsored by the Minnesota Historical Society.

Students choose topics of personal interest and spend a month or more doing research and preparing a public display. Projects were reviewed by a panel of 21 judges at the event, which included BSU faculty and students, local elementary school teachers and local residents.

Seventy-three students participated from eight local schools: Bemidji Middle School, Cass-Lake Bena Middle School, Red Lake Middle and High schools, Northland Community Schools, Bug O Ne Ge Shig School, Bagley Jr. Sr. High School and Mitchell Academy.
