OROVILLE, Calif - The Butte County Office of Education held their second annual “National History Day” on Saturday.
The day began bright and early at 8 a.m. at Nelson Avenue Middle School and Congressman Doug LaMalfa even took the time to speak.
Students throughout Butte County participated in the event by making websites, documentaries, exhibits and drama performances based on the theme of “Conflict and Compromise in History.”
Action News Now spoke to an eighth grader who loves to learn some history.
“I love history and history is being made every day-um history shapes how the world works and without history, we wouldn't have our world right now,” said Maddison Cunningham, an eighth-grader who participated in the event.
Judges were also present and the top 12 projects will go to Rocklin, California for the state competition.
It all wrapped up at about 1:30 Saturday afternoon for the award ceremony.
