4 National History Day Finalists Announced From Stuyvesant

National History Day is a high-level academic research competition offered each year, in which students present their research in a variety of formats. According to Ms. Jennifer Suri, the Assistant Principal of the Social Studies Department, the research is “centered on the analysis of primary source documents and fully complements the skills of analysis and research that we strive to teach in our social studies classes.” These students show that Stuyvesant is not just a math and science school. Ms. Suri has “always aimed to make student research and accomplishments in the humanities on par in terms of awards and school-wide recognition with math and science,” and the students are definitely succeeding.

Close to 500 students competed in the New York City Regional level of the History Day Competition.  Both public and private schools competed in categories presenting research in the format of documentary films, websites, dramatic performance and poster board presentations. Three students who qualified for Nationals are in Mr. Robert Sandler’s class and one is from Mr. Victor Greez’s class. Below please find the links to some of the projects that were submitted by our students!

This competition is an expensive one, and the Alumni Association already helped them get to regionals with $3,000.  These students still need $3,000 to help cover fees and hotel/transportation costs for the national round. Please consider helping them today by donating to the General Fund!
