Ramsey County History – Summer 2022: “All Hail Young Historians: Minnesota Represented at National History Day 2022”
All Hail Young Historians: Minnesota Represented at National History Day 2022
Everyone loves a good competition, including the Minnesota junior high and high school students whose thirty-six projects advanced from local, regional, and state levels all the way to the top—the National History Day national competition, which took place virtually this year in early June. Ten of those projects came from young historians in Ramsey County. Following the 2022 theme of “Debate & Diplomacy in History: Successes, Failures, Consequences,” nearly 1,700 entries from across the country and several nations were divided into eighteen categories. Scholars could write a research paper or create individual and group documentaries, performances, exhibits, or websites. Ramsey County Historical Society congratulates all of the participants and invites our readers to learn more about their fascinating research projects, including “Fight for Our Wilderness: The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness Act,” a documentary by Abigail Peters from Roseville Area High School.
