It's Monterey County History Day

Come by Los Arboles Middle School this Saturday, March 8, to enjoy savvy history presentations by students in grades 4 to 12 all over Monterey County.

This year the theme is "Rights and Responsibilities." What are our rights as citizens of the United States? What are our responsibilities?

Most importantly, how do students express these ideas? Come find out!

History Day is an enrichment program that furthers understanding of historical issues, ideas, people and events. The winning projects of the Monterey County competition will go on to the state finals on April in Riverside. About 35,000 students in California participate in the program each year.

So check it out! The competition will be held from 9 to noon, and the awards ceremony starts at 4:30 p.m.

  1. Claudia, a really cool history day would include guest speakers from the Monterey County Historical Society conducting a Q&A with students.
