Lauren's National History Day Trip
This year, her fourth year of involvement, Lauren chose to do her project on the Armenian genocide. She spent countless hours researching this topic, conducting interviews, reading books and other publications and writing her script for this year’s theme, Exploration, Encounter and Exchange in History. Her work paid off with wins at the regional and county level. Last week, she competed against 18 of the brightest junio high school kids in the state. Despite heavy competition, she took home the championship for the state of California for Junior Performance. The following is only a clip:
Lauren's win at the state level makes her eligible to represent California at the national contest in College Park, Maryland. Travel, room, food and incidental expenses are very expensive. Even though this is a school sanctioned activity, no funding is available from the school district. We are asking for any help through this GoFundMe campaign.
Many have asked for a better video so we made one which can be found at the following link.
Thank you all again for your support and wish Lauren luck as she spreads awareness of the Armenian Genocide.
Lauren, We wish you all the best in DC. You will an outstanding job Can't wait to hear the results!! Show 'em what you've got!!
Lauren we applaud you. Your research is impeccable and your presentation of a very difficult topic is greatly admired. Good luck in the the National finals in Washington, D.C.
Looks like you reached your financial goal. Now its time to take the Championship. Remember when you get out in front of the judges, you are already a winner. No one can take that away from you. Just tell a good story. All the best.
