National History Day 2007 Finals
When Wisconsinites Win, They Win Big!
Cody Haro of Holmen earned 1st
place for his senior individual exhibit
about the Abraham Lincoln Battalion.
Today was an exciting day for the members of Team Wisconsin as they attended the awards ceremony for the 2007 national competition. Cody Haro's exhibit about the Abraham Lincoln Battalion clearly impressed the judges, earning him the spot of the best senior individual exhibit in the nation!
The 2007 Team Wisconsin delegation has represented our state well during the entire duration of the contest. In addition to their spectacular work, Wisconsinites have stayed true to their Wisconsin reputation as they lent a hand or a kind word whenever it was needed. Friendships have formed between participants from across the state and each student has surely strengthened their sense of Wisconsin pride.
Thank you to all of the students, teachers and parents for making this contest a success!
