Of the 57 Missouri students who recently competed in the 2020 National History Day contest, which was held online this year due to coronavirus, one Northlander, Liberty North High School student Katherine Mackenzie, received an Outstanding Entry Award for her work, "Sesame Street: Expanding the Neighborhood."

This year’s contest theme was “Breaking Barriers in History.”

Danielle Griego, program coordinator for NHD in Missouri, said students adapted well to the virtual format for both state and national contests this year, according to a press release.

“Their hard work, dedication, and willingness to think outside of the box is truly impressive," Griego said. "They broke barriers and made history. We are all very proud.”
