South Pointe ‘History Day’ team going to nationals

DIAMOND BAR, CA-- Four South Pointe Middle School honors students are headed to Washington D.C. for the National History Day competition on June 12-16.

Eighth graders Joshua Chung, Raymond Cheng, Cyrus Phan, and Phillip Huynh created the winning “NASA’s Early Manned Missions” exhibit.

“They were declared California champions and will be representing the state at the national contest,” said social studies teacher and advisor Kevin Duh.

A total of three groups from South Pointe competed during the California History Day contest on May 6-8.

The students spent several months researching topics revolving around the 2016 NHD theme “Exploration, Encounter, and Exchange.”

Their projects qualified for the state competition at the L.A. County History Day at Azusa Pacific University in March.
