Kennewick Student Bound for National History Day Competition
A Kennewick School District student is bound for nationals!
Lydia Galle, a freshman at Delta High School, qualified for the National History Day 2022 National Contest in June after an outstanding performance at the state competition.
Lydia placed second in the group performance category with Delta classmates Mario Camacho Jr. and Lincoln Nolte from the Richland School District.
In all, 23 students from Delta competed at the Washington History Day state contest, with four students and two projects qualifying for nationals, which will be held virtually.
Delta also took top honors at state, winning Outstanding School in the senior division for the third time.
David Blacketer from KSD was one of three Delta teachers who worked with the students and took them to state.
