Decorah Home School Assistance Program (HSAP) students Eva Kriemelmeyer and Dominic Wheeler each received awards at the state National History Day competition in Des Moines on April 29.

Kriemelmeyer received the Women’s History Award for best project examining a topic in women’s history. Her project, an individual performance, is titled “Amanda T. Jones’s Vacuum Sealing Method: A Turning Point in Food Preservation.”

Wheeler’s project earned a 3rd place award in the paper category and is the alternate to the national competition at the University of Maryland in June. His paper is titled “Kings, Cavalry, and Golden Apples: Jan Sobieski and the 1683 Siege of Vienna.”

National History Day is a year-long academic enrichment program that challenges students to research, develop, and present projects about historical issues, ideas, people, and events related to an annual theme. This year’s theme is Turning Points in History. The students are coached by HSAP coordinator Bonnie Johnson.
