National History Day
National History Day is an exciting academic enrichment program that helps students learn about historical issues, ideas, people, and events. This academic adventure provides teachers with an innovative teaching tool and fosters students' enthusiasm for learning.
In 2008, five teams from Seymour H. S. qualified for state competition. Under the leadership of junior history teacher, Dan Brice, one team will be moving on to the nation finals in Washington, D. C. and another received honorable mention.
The national finalists, Katie Lubinski, and Alex Moeller, created a huge replica of a hamburger with various layers representing the debate over the origin of the burger. Their colossal creation will be on display at the museum following the national competition. They are one of two national finalists from Wisconsin. Congratulations girls!
John VandenHeuvel, Tyler Friestrom, and Dennis Schneider earned honorable mention with their documentary about German Prisoners of War in Wisconsin.
