Students win big at County History Day
Posted on 03/31/2019
Eleven CIMS students were crowned champions at the 29th annual San Bernardino County History Day awards ceremony held at Summit High School on March 9.

About 350 students competed in the event, and the individual/group qualifiers now advance to the California History Day competition in May in Rocklin.

This year’s theme was “Triumph and Tragedy In History.” There were three divisions with both individual and group competitions: Elementary (Grades 4-5), Junior (Grades 6-8) and Senior (Grades 9-12). 

History Day gives students a chance to compete in a variety of categories on a historical theme. The Elementary Division only has one category of competition, posters. The Junior and Senior divisions compete in exhibit, documentary, performance, website and research paper categories.
