DELLA BARTUCCA Advances to Nationals in History Competition by Ivanha Paz National History Day is an academic program and contest that takes place all over the country. Stu- dents choose their own historical topic within a theme that's picked for the current year, this year the theme for the dis- trict level was "Rights and Responsibilities." Delia Bartucca, an eighth grader from Coakley Middle School, won first place in her district, securing her spot in the national competi- tion which will take place at the University of Mary- land from June 15a-19 m. The contest consists of a presentation to a panel of judges which can be an individual exhibit, a documen- tary, a written paper, a performance piece, or a website, Before the presentation the participating students are expected to conduct extensive research where they learn how to gather background information and to utilize all the resources at their disposal, such as libraries, databasem oral interviews, etc. At Norwood, this competition has been part of the eighth grade curriculum for the past three years. It is a long project beginning with choosing a topic at the start of the school year and working on the process with the teacher's guidance step by step. Bartucca researched and presented the Easter Rebellion in Ireland. She said her Irish grandfather gave her the idea. She chose to exhibit her work in the style of a museum exhibit, using a poster board with "little mailboxes" that could be opened, to read information about the insurrection.
