For the first time, Canterbury sent students to participate in the National History Day competition at the county level. This year's theme was Conflict and Compromise, and it proved to be a great framework for our 8th grade Honors History students to pursue their personal interests as they relate to national and world history topics.
The following projects and students represented Canterbury at the 2018 Pinellas County NHD competition on March 2nd and 3rd.
- Group Documentary/Protestant Reformation: Robby Burton, Liam McFarland, Abby Traynor
- Group Documentary/1967 Detroit Riots: Wyatt Goulding, Ayden Ramos
- Solo Paper/Alexander the Great: Bonnie Snell
- Solo Paper/Separation of Czechoslovakia: Max Kluzek
- Solo Website/Cuban Missile Crisis: Max Akridge
- Group Website/D-Day: Jack Connors, Connor Ely, Jared Mantell
- Group Website/Cuban Missile Crisis: Dylan Perez, Ben Sun
- Solo Exhibit/Trump and Illegal Immigration: Mackenzie Bergstrom
- Group Exhibit/Surfing Revolution: Gavin Swartzwelder, Nia Tomalin
We are excited to announce that two of Canterbury's projects, Max Kluzek's individual paper and the group documentary by Robby Burton, Liam McFarland, and Abby Traynor, went to the final round of judging in the NHD competition! Max Kluzek won 3rd place! Dylan Perez and Ben Sun won the "Best of School" award.
