ACADEMICS: Scholars Sophomores Qualify for National History Day Finals

Sophomore Scholars Academy students V'dell Carter, Jakalya Cornish, Portia Daniels, Otiana Thompson and Caitlyn Wilson have qualified to compete at the national competition for National History Day for their spoken word performance: The Chimurenga Story about the South African Shona insurrection. National History Day is a year-long academic program focused on historical research, interpretation and creative expression for 6-12th grade students. By participating in National History Day, students become writers, filmmakers, web designers, playwrights and artists as they create unique contemporary expressions of history. The experience culminates in a series of contests at the local and affiliate levels, and an annual competition in our nation's capital in June. 
Other Blazers also excelled at the state level. Abigail Adams and Nyah Hunt place 3rd in the Group Website division, and are alternates for the national competition. Lauryn Wilson and Makeenie Robinson won the J.C. Wilson Award in World History for their Senior Group Website. Reilly Arford and Jada Hall also represented Ridge View in the Senior Group Documentary division. Special thanks to AP World History teacher Peggy Futrill and Scholars Sophomore Research teacher Dr. Casey Moore for mentoring our students through this process. Congratulations Blazers!
