Lakewood School sent 14 eighth grade students to a regional National History Day competition on March 1. Students from Racine, Kenosha, and Milwaukee counties all gathered at UW-Milwaukee to compete for a chance to attend the state competition in Madison on May 3. Students could compete in areas such as exhibits, documentaries, websites, research papers and performances. This year’s annual theme was “Rights and Responsibilities in History.”
Lakewood student Lauren Pryor qualified for the state level this year by doing a performance as Pauline Leon – an activist who fought for women’s rights during the French Revolution. Lauren was one of the top three performances in all of Racine, Kenosha, and Milwaukee counties.
Students participating from Lakewood at regionals were: Matthew Radloff, Jordyn VanZeland, Lauren Pryor, Hunter Valach, Payton Murray, Jared Ticha, Ethan LaRose, Madison Bailey, Joshua McConnell, Katlyn VanDuyn, Jayden Hendrie, Mackenzie Stiller, Lily Pellegrian and Morgan Zenon.
