Frederick County's Maryland History Day competition entries will be judged Saturday at Crestwood Middle School, according to Jim Lichtinger, a veterans benefits specialist at the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs.
Seventy middle and high school entries, including individual and group research papers, websites, documentary performances and exhibits on the theme "Rights and Responsibilities in History" will be presented to the public beginning at 9 a.m. Those who advance will compete at the state level May 3 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
Maryland History Day is a yearlong educational program that encourages students to explore local, state, national and world history, according to its website. Students conduct extensive research and create final projects to present their work in competition.
