Shorewood High School students took home 15 awards, the most of any high school in the North Puget Sound Regional History Day contest held March 19 at Shoreline Center.

The culmination of a year-long program in which students choose and research a topic, learning historical research principles and strategies, North Puget Sound Regional History Day is part of a national effort to enhance history education and prepare students to become informed and involved citizens. This year's contest theme is "Innovation in History: Impact and Change."

The Shorewood students qualified for the state competition at Bellevue College on Saturday, May 1. The top two finishers in each category at the state event will compete in the national contest June 13 to 17 at the University of Maryland, College Park.

At the Shoreline regional event, a record 556 students in grades 6-12 took part by conducting research and presenting their results in one of five categories: exhibits, papers, multi-media documentaries, original performances and websites.
