Hard Work Pays Off for Freshmen at NHD Night

Hard Work Pays Off for Freshmen at NHD Night

On February 27, Sage Hill’s History and Social Studies Department hosted National History Day Night in the Peter V. Ueberroth Gym. This year’s NHD theme was Triumph and Tragedy in History.

All ninth grade students spent weeks researching a topic that interested them, investigating it in depth, and learning how to present research as historians do. They presented their projects, which could be in the form of a website, documentary video, exhibit, papers and more.
