Students competing in the National History Day Regional Competition at Penn State Wilkes-Barre chose topics related to this year’s theme, “Rights and Responsibilites,” and conducted primary and secondary research at libraries, archives, museums and historical sites as well as through oral history interviews. History Day competition allows students to present their work through one of five media: paper, exhibit, performance, documentary or website.

The top three finishers at the regional level will advance to the state competition. Winners of the state competition will move on to the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest at the Unversity of Maryland at College Park in June.

The day’s events included a presentation of “The Movie Industry in Wilkes-Barre, Actress Leatrice Joy in the Black Diamond Comedies of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.”
