Salisbury and Wilmington Papers Carry Piece About Award Winning Projects by 3 Cecil County High School Students

Two Delmarva Newspapers, the Wilmington News Journal and the Salisbury Daily Times, noticed that Cecil County had three winners in the annual Maryland History Day Project.

Across Maryland some 12,000 senior and junior high school students participated in the Maryland History Day Project by completing an original research project. Over 400 of these teens were selected at county level competitions for the annual statewide contest at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.  Two Cecil County entries won prizes at the state contest:

  1. From Rising Sun High School, “the Molotov-Rippentrop Pact,” submitted by Tyler Haines and Andrew Nguyen, won the senior prize for the study of cryptology.
  2. Kyle Dixon, a student at Bohemia Manor, won the senior prize in African American studies. His project, “School Integration: The Long Difficult Road to Compromise,” examined desegregation in Cecil, Kent, and Queen Anne’s County.

The annual contest is sponsored here by the Maryland Humanities Council
