Congratulations and best of luck to four DeLaSalle students who have qualified their projects for the National History Day competition at the University of Maryland from June 11-15.

All four students qualified for Nationals by virtue of first or second place finishes at Minnesota State History Day program on April 29.  Erin Boehme `18 earned first place in the Research Paper category, while Nadia Johnson `18 captured first in Individual Websites.  Also qualifying for Nationals as second place finishers in their categories are Julia Gerloff `18 in Individual Websites and Ava Methner `18 in Individual Documentaries.

With four projects advancing, DeLaSalle has qualified more projects for Nationals than any other Minnesota high school in 2017.  In fact, as has been reported earlier, with 18 different projects recognized as medalists or honorable mention, more DeLaSalle students were honored at the State level than any other school.  Congratulations to teachers Marty Marrin and Sheri Hank, to Erin, Nadia, Julia, and Ava, the four students representing DeLaSalle and Minnesota at the National level, and to all the students who did such stellar academic research and study in the History Day program throughout the year.
