Students compete in annual History Fair

Seventh and eighth grade projects were up for judging April 14th at the annual school History Fair. Students worked hard on projects in the following categories: poster, models, graphics. Each category is awarded a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place along with honorable mentions. In addition, there's a Best of Show for each grade level. The NSMS History Fair has been one of the longest running events at the school--over 30 years!
