BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Students who ranged from elementary school to high school came together this weekend from all across Butte County to take part in National History Day.

The kids showed off their knowledge, with some going "old school" with posters, and others building websites.

12-year-old competitor Emma Lund said, "The fact that theres so many stories to tell that relate to themes and the way people present it whether its an exhibit, a documentary, skit... Its really cool to see everyone's perspective on stories."

The top three winners compete in Sacramento -- and even get a shot at moving forward to the national championship.

The last two days saw quite a bit of rain in Northern California. Today we could see more but the showers look to be more isolated today than in previous days. Highs today are expected to reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
