Sierra Vista Shines at National History Day Competition

Sierra Vista Middle School students, Frances K. and Michelle K., received first-place honors in the Junior Group Documentary Category during the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest, held from June 14 to 18 at the University of Maryland in College Park.  Their documentary was titled “Henry Ford: Driving America Into the Future,” and their teachers were Barbara Hall and Jonathan Millers.

More than 500,000 elementary, middle and high school students from the U.S. and beyond take part in National History Day competitions at the local, state and national levels each year, conducting extensive research based on a yearly theme before submitting complex projects in the form of papers, exhibits, performances, websites and documentaries. School competitions are held in the winter, followed by county and state contests.

In May, California’s National History Day event was held at William Jessup University in Rocklin, drawing more than 1,161 students from 25 counties. Fifteen of those students ultimately got the chance to bring their projects to the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest. This year’s theme was “Leadership and Legacy in History.”

Way to go Frances and Michelle!!

 

Sierra Vista Sent Only OC Student to Compete

in National Spelling Bee

Sierra Vista Middle School Student Sarika R. was the only Orange County student to qualify for the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee in Maryland.  Sarika participated in a written vocabulary test and two rounds of preliminary oral examination.  She was one of only 285 students nationwide to participate in this prestigious competition.

 Spelling Bee

While Sarika did not advance to the semifinals, she has received a great deal of local attention for her incredible accomplishment.  She has been featured in two Orange County Register articles and her class was able to watch her compete live on ESPN.

Congratulations to Sarika for job well done!
