Congratulations to two of our regular History Day teachers for being named 2021 Teachers of the Year for their schools: Randi Merritt of Somerset Intermediate School and Stephen Smith of Washington Academy and High School.
Due to the move to online learning in all three of the counties that participate in the Lower Eastern Shore National History Day contest and the additional stresses this puts on teachers, students, and families, none of the county school systems will be sponsoring NHD programs during the 2020-2021 school year. Consequently, there will be no Lower Eastern Shore NHD regional contest in winter/spring 2021. Check back next year, when we expect to resume our participation in this outstanding student activity.
The 2021 theme, in case you're curious, is "Communication in History: The Key to Understanding."
Contest date: No Lower Eastern Shore regional contest this year
Location: Salisbury University, with registration and most events taking place in the Guerrieri Academic Commons (GAC)
Parking: Visitors may park on campus for free on weekends, with no permit required. Your best bet is the parking lot in front of the Guerrieri Academic Commons, which may be accessed from Rte. 13/South Salisbury Blvd.
