Students from area junior and senior high schools competed in the regional History Day competition at Westminster College March 29.
This year's theme, "Revolution, Reaction, Reform in History," was portrayed by students in one of nine categories: individual or group exhibits, individual or group performance, individual or group documentary, group or individual website design, or individual paper.
The top three regional winners in each category advance to the state contest, May 4-5, at Cumberland Valley High School in Mechanicsburg. State winners advance to the national contest.
