2020 NATIONAL HISTORY DAY COLORADO WINNERS ANNOUNCED

THE WINNING T-SHIRT DESIGN FROM THIS YEAR’S COMPETITION

The Honor Bell Foundation is a proud partner with National History Day Colorado.  Though “virtual” this year, a number of students from around the state competed with projects based on the theme of “Breaking Barriers.”  The foundation provides an annual Special Award to the projects that best exemplify the contribution to history by a veteran or group of veterans.

Students were hampered this year by having to put all their projects online and not being able to interact with judges.  Nonetheless, for 2020 we had a record number of entries.  Because all judging was done online, we were privileged to have two veterans (and history buffs) contribute to our judging.  The winners this year are:

  • In the junior division; Eleanora Rowe and Gia Vasconcellos for their performance project “Ruling the Night: The Awe-Inspiring Legacy of the 588th NIght Bomber Regiment.” 

  • Senior division winners are Luke Harwood and Bryce Shumate for their documentary film “The Secret Code: How the Navajo Language Broke the Barrier to Win the War.”

  • We truly had too many great choices in the senior division and, for the first time, awarded a second-place prize to Ariana Waters for her exhibit: Born with Curiosity: How Grace Hopper Broke Barriers in Military and Technological History.”

Congratulations to all the participants!
