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.
