History Day went extremely well. We made it past our preliminary round as one of the top two in our room. This qualified us for the final round (a compilation of the top two Senior group performances from every room); we were now one of fourteen. We didn’t place in the top three, we actually ended up in 9th, but God has truly blessed us in the experience. To our complete surprise, Joel, Isaac and I (and I should mention our wonderful teacher/mother, Barbara) were awarded with the Colonial Williamsburg Award, given to the best project that has to do with a Revolutionary or Colonial topic. This topic also included a $5,000 scholarship to be spilt amongst the three of us. This was truly a great honor and blessing.
