Heritage Academy students participate in history day

Hundreds of students across Arizona competed during the month of March in the regional finals of the National History Day competition, where students in six through 12th grade compete in various categories, including exhibits, documentaries, performances, historical papers, and websites, to prove a specific theme.

Two Heritage Academy Gateway high school students, Victoria Smith and Laura Underwood, competed in the historical paper category and won in the East Valley Regionals.  Heritage Academy, 19705 E. Germann Road. also had six junior high students—Jaycee Graffius, Lauren Anderson, Emily Bradfield, David Allen, Sophie Allen and Gentry Webb— who also earned the right to advance in the contest.

These students will compete against other regional winners in the state finals, which will be held at Arizona State University on April 16.
