LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Seventeen schools participated in the Regional National History Day competition at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse Wednesday.
It was a chance for middle and high school students to focus on history and research.
This year's theme: Turning Points.
Students had a chance to prove their thesis through performance, a traditional paper, a web site, a documentary or an exhibit.
"Some problems can be solved through adding numbers, some problems can be solved through creating experiments that can be redone and verified again and again, and some problems in our world are solved through asking questions and sifting though those resources to find the answer," said Patricia Stovey, National History Day regional director.
Those students who move on from Wednesday's regional competition will move onto the state competition.
The nation competition will be held in College Park, Maryland.
