Hundreds of middle and high school students are strutting their stuff at the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City during the History Day state finals through Thursday.
The sixth- through 12-grade students are competing with a wide variety of entries, Oklahoma Historical Society spokesman Larry O'Dell said Wednesday.
"They can be exhibits, they can be papers, they can be plays, they can be web-based projects," he said.
Two middle school contestants are performing a play about Kate Barnard.
"(She) was the first elected woman in Oklahoma, right after statehood, and so they do a historically accurate play about Kate Barnard and what she was and did for Oklahoma," said O'Dell
The winners will advance to the History Day finals in Maryland in June.
