On March 5th beginning at 5pm, Coupeville Middle and High School Students will be practicing their History Day presentations in the community meeting room at the Coupeville Public Library.
Turning Points in History: People, Ideas, Events is the theme for this year’s National History Day Competition. Coupeville has five entries this year. Three entries are in the senior division; two are in the junior division. Students are working on the following topics (1) Seabees (2) The deinstitutionalization of mental health facilities and how Service Alternatives created a unique service program for those who would have been previously confined to institutions (3) A labor strike by lumber workers in 1917 that led to significant changes in labor rights (4) D-Day ( 5) The Berlin Wall.
Members of the public are invited to attend this program to support participating students in practicing their presentations – and to learn a little history!
