The contest is put on by the Oregon Historical Society, however this event was only for those who participated for at least 2 years in the Oregon History Day contests, and they could choose anything nationwide that represented "Turning Points in History." Carly worked 6 months on her project, researching, watching videos, she read like 5 big thick books on her subject, "The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911"
They were judged on their presentation board, research papers, and a personal interview with the judges. There were 26 total participants from Oregon. Here's a pic of Carly with her T.A.G. teacher (and keynote speaker for this event) Ms. Lupton.
WAY 2 GO CARLY!!! We're all so proud of you and your hard work. Love you *MUAH*
