More than 1,000 students from across Texas convened at the University of Texas in Austin on May 2 to compete in Texas History Day. After placing in either first or second place, approximately 60 students from across the state advanced to compete at National History Day this summer. Twenty-one of the students are from Aldine ISD. It is safe to say that the students are ecstatic. They and the six AISD projects head to the national event set for June 13-18 at the University of Maryland-College Park.
This year’s theme is “Leadership & Legacy in History.”
At the 2015 state event, AISD had 86 students compete with 36 different projects. AISD students showed they are history buffs. A total of 16 AISD projects advanced to the final round of the state competition.
Stovall MS student Devanny Jiménez placed in the top nine of the final round with her Junior Individual Website: “William Randolph Hearst: Power to the Press”.
