FRANKFORT, KY (FOX19) - Students from around the Commonwealth were rewarded for their talents and research in history at the Kentucky Junior Historical Society (KJHS) 2012 Conference and Kentucky History Day at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in Frankfort on Friday, April 27, and Saturday, April 28.
KJHS is part of the National History Day program, a yearlong academic program focused on promoting historical research by students in sixth through 12th grades. Students analyze the historical significance of their personally chosen topics and present conclusions in dramatic performances, imaginative exhibits, multimedia documentaries, websites and research papers. State winners have the opportunity to compete at the national level at the University of Maryland in June. The theme for this year’s contest was “Revolution, Reaction and Reform in History.”
