THANK YOU FROM OUR 2011 NATIONAL HISTORY DAY PARTICIPANTS:
Thanks to our donors' generous financial support of our National History Day participants, all 20 had the opportunity to showcase their work at the National Contest held recently outside of Washington, D.C. Our students performed admirably, and one of our entries finished just out of the top three in the nation. I am convinced that there is no better celebration of history for America’s middle and high school students than the National History Day Contest. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the generosity of our donors, which is why I would like to extend to you my sincere thanks and appreciation. Several of the students have also written letters of thanks, and I hope you will take a moment to hear from the students themselves just how grateful they are.
With much gratitude,
Louisiana History Day Coordinator
