Students capture national titles, surpass international competitors

Freshman Essie Workman and 10th-grader Truman Spring spent their summer traveling to the University of Maryland; competing against 3,000 students; and securing rankings as the U.S.’ top #7 and #8 students, respectively, at the National History Day Contest.

Hawaii News Now article:

Spring – Hawaii’s first-place winner in the “Senior (9-12) Paper” category at the state History Day contest, the qualifying leg for June’s national competition – placed eighth in the U.S. in the Essay category. His paper, “The Legacy of Caesar Augustus: The Prince of the Senate, The Price of the Peace,” explored Caesar’s quest for peace and his leadership style that still exists today. At nationals, he also won the Outstanding State Entry – Senior Division award.
 
In Workman’s Individual Performance, “Captain America: A Man Before His Time,” she played various roles that conveyed the impact that the super hero inspired in minorities, women and the physically challenged during WWII.  Besides placing seventh nationally, her entry earned a special World War II award. In the state contest, she placed first in her category.
 
Competitors in the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest came from China, South Asia, Korea, all 50 United States, the District of Columbia, Central America, Puerto Rico, American Samoa and Guam.
 
Spring’s teachers were Lorey Ishihara and Debra Ulii, while Workman’s was Lisa Lessing.
 
Hawaii History Day, a prequalifier for NHD, is a Hawaii Council for the Humanities program.

The Kahuku High and Intermediate duo survived the preliminaries, during which 85 percent of the entries from the sixth- through 12th-grade contestants were eliminated. The finals consisted of the top 15 percent with some 14 entries in five categories.
