Stevensville Middle and High School students did an extraordinary job competing in the 2021 National History Day Competition, placing in the top 3 in nearly all of the categories. These students, guided by their amazing advisors (Ms. Jacqueline Marshall and Mr. Wes Wells), went above and beyond their regular school work to create some really awesome projects. Some of the students will be going on to compete at the national level.

Both advising teachers were also named NHD Teacher of the Year for Montana! Ms. Marshall for the Junior Division and Mr. Wells for the Senior Division. They will now go on to the national level against 45+ other teachers. We wish them all the best!

What an incredible showing for Stevensville and a big CONGRATULATIONS to the students and advisors.

Below are links to some of the winning projects as well as pictures of some of the students that participated.
