East Tennessee high school students

UT hosts district competition for National History Day

The East Tennessee Historical Society and UT’s Department of History teamed up to sponsor National History Day, the district competition between middle and high school students all across the East Tennessee area for a chance to advance to the state competition. Lisa Oakley–Curator of Education in the ETHS–was one of the members in charge of the competition, and was impressed to see how much effort the students put in to their projects. The 1st-3rd place winners of the district competition will advance to the state competition, held in Nashville, Tennessee, on April 12, 2014.
