Four Shorewood High School projects have qualified for state competition following the North Puget Sound Regional History Day contest at Shoreline Center. All are advanced placement students under teacher Mikael Christensen.

History Day is part of a national effort to enhance history education and prepare students to become informed and involved citizens.

At the Shoreline regional event, 490 students in grades 6 to 12 participated by conducting research and presenting their results in one of five categories: exhibits, papers, multi-media documentaries, original performances and websites. They work as individuals or in groups of up to five members.

The state competition will be held at Bellevue College on Saturday, May 5. The top two finishers in each category will compete in the national contest June 10 to 14 at the University of Maryland, College Park.
