On Thursday, Westminster College will host neighboring middle and high school students for National History Day, a competition that encourages students in the United States to create unique expressions of history.

Students in grades 6 through 12 from Beaver, Butler, Clarion, Forest, Lawrence, Mercer, and Venango counties will compete on campus in various categories displaying their historical knowledge. This year’s theme, “Exploration, Encounter, Exchange in History,” will feature categories including historical papers, documentaries, exhibits, performances, and websites.

Westminster faculty, staff and history students serve as judges. The top three entries in each category are eligible to compete at the National History Day in Pennsylvania contest in May at Millersville University.

For more information, contact Dr. Patricia Clark, associate professor of history, at or (724) 946-7248.
