25 years ago: Lawrence sixth-graders head to national history competition

May 18, 2012


From the Lawrence Daily Journal-World for May 18, 1987:

A project by Hillcrest sixth-graders Mickey Casad and Andrea Hill had recently placed second at Kansas History Day. Their project, "Behind Barbed Wire: The Rights of Americans," had dealt with the treatment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. The girls were now working on improving their project for the national competition, to be held in Washington, D.C., in June, by interviewing people who had been detained in detention camps or who had lost property during the war. The project was the only one from Lawrence that was to be entered in the national competition.
