Celebrating our young scholars at the Lander Library

Special Display at the Lander Library

Every June, hundreds of students travel to Washington D.C. to compete in the National History Day competition. A group of Lander area students qualified for this national competition by their dedication to research and creative presentation of history on the theme “Conflict & Compromise in History.” Through September the Lander Library is shining the spotlight on these students with a special display of their national-caliber projects.

Congratulations to these Lander scholars:
