Hanna to Compete in National History Day
Posted on 04/11/2019
A Lake City Early College High School student will represent South Carolina at the National History Day competition this summer at the University of Maryland, College Park after earning second place in the state competition at Midlands Technical College in West Columbia on April 6.

Senior Christian Hanna performed a dramatic performance based on the Nat Turner slave rebellion. Hanna started his performance by pretending he was a tour guide for a museum, but then turned into Clyde Turner to explain the impact of this event in history.  The judges were impressed and Hanna scored second place in the individual performance category.

LCECHS freshmen Conner Belin and Preston Gray also competed at the state level with group website on the Harlem Renaissance.

The National Contest is the final stage of a series of contests at local and state/affiliate levels. Students begin their journey by presenting their projects in classrooms, schools, and districts around the world. Top entries are invited to the state/affiliate level contests. The top two entries in every category at the state/affiliate level are then invited to the National Contest June 9-13.
