    LACONIA — Twelve students from Holy Trinity competed at the statewide National History Day competition held at Plymouth State University on Saturday, April 6.

    The students created websites, documentaries, exhibits, papers or performances as individuals or in groups based on this year’s theme “Turning Points in History.”

    The students participating were Dominique Bolduc, Katie DeRoche, Adrianna Dinsmoor, Ronnie Hook, Nicholas Jope, Clara Jude, Josh LeClaire, James Marceau, Caitlin Mallahan, Sarah Morin, Johnny Skehan, and Madison Vickery.

    Holy Trinity School announced that nine of our students were selected to compete at the national competition to be held in College Park, Md., in June.

    Morin will present her website about Alexander II and the Modernization of Russia. Jude’s paper highlighting Alice Paul and The National American Woman Suffrage Association will be judged for content, research sources and connection to the theme. Mallahan and Vickery will show their documentary about Patsy Mink and Title IX.

    Bolduc, Dinsmoor and Marceau will perform their own play entitled: Edward Jenner and the Smallpox Vaccine. Hook and LeClaire will share their exhibit about the effect of Pearl Harbor and World War II on the American economy.

    Karen Sullivan, the school’s social studies teacher who oversaw these projects, was awarded the New Hampshire National History Day Middle School Teacher Award of Excellence.

    To attend this competition each student will need to raise roughly $500. Anyone who wishes to help support their efforts can make a donation by calling Holy Trinity School 524-3156.
