Students strut their history stuff

Students strut their history stuff

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.
