Recently three of our 8th Grade TAG students from Oak Ridge created National History Day projects. This year three of those students who participated in the regional competition in Waterloo were advanced to the state competition.
Akash Gururaja made a documentary about Ravi Shankar and his contributions to the music industry by bringing eastern music to the west. Thomas Digmann and Ben Hinz created a website about Arthur Ashe and his dedication and devotion to end apartheid in South Africa.
All three students will be competing in Des Moines at the State National History Day competition on Monday, May 4, at the Iowa Events Center.
Congratulations to Akash, Thomas and Ben on your outstanding achievements!
