In early April, student winners of the Maine National History Day competition were celebrated in a ceremony in the cultural building in Augusta, the home of the Maine State Museum, Archives, and Library. MHS Director Steve Bromage, State Historian Earle Shettleworth, Commissioner of Education Tom DesJardins, and University of Maine administrators, among others, were on hand to congratulate students who will go onto the national competition in Maryland in June. MHS is part of a consortium that organizes the competition, which is held at UMaine in Orono in March.
