Every year in the state of Colorado alone, 15,000 students participate in the National History Day competition. History Day is a national competition that is dedicated to teaching students history through an intensive study of specific historical events. The organization strives to illuminate history for students in middle school and high school by presenting an annual theme and the task of creating a project to present the yearlong study of an idea, event, or person from the past. Through work and a precise following of many steps, students will be able to develop an exceptional project that could even win some awards at the end of the school year.
“I don’t consider myself a hero, my training has taught me what to do in case of an emergency. I thought fast and made the right decisions, just like every other bus driver." Daniel Martinez may decline being called a hero but in my book he was great man for what he did and how he handled the situation.
