MEEKER | Last week 14 Barone Middle School eighth-graders and three Meeker High School students traveled to Grand Junction to participate in the annual Regional History Day competition.

“Each student has been working hard on creating their project for this year’s theme, ‘Breaking Barriers’,” said BMS history teacher Kris Casey.

Students participated in the local History Day competition on Feb. 13. Once they qualified for the regional competition, students were allowed to make improvements to their projects to prepare for the event.

“I am very proud of the time, effort and dedication these students put into their projects,” Casey said. “Every one of them learned and taught others something new.”

Nine of the eighth-graders and the three high schoolers will move on to the state competition in Denver on May 2.
