NEK History Day: Call for Homeschoolers

On March 27, 2013 the Old Stone House Museum/Orleans Historical Society, Inc. will once again host the NEK History Day competition at IROC in Derby, VT. All students in grades 6-12 are invited to participate whether they attend public or private school or are homeschooled.

NEK History Day is a competition in which students choose historical topics and conduct extensive primary and secondary research through libraries, archives, museums, oral history interviews and historic sites (like the Old Stone House Museum). After analyzing and interpreting their sources and drawing conclusions about their topics’ significance in history, students present their work in exhibits, performances or documentaries.

If you are interested in having your child participate or have questions please contact Aimee Alexander at education@oldstonehousemuseum.org or check out the information still posted from the 2011 competition on the Old Stone House Museum website.

Naptime means playtime for NEK mom Aimee Alexander, whose creative outlet is writing about all things mom-related including children’s health advocacy, education, raising kids in rural America, and the occasional project or recipe. You can also find her on Facebook and Pinterest!
