HIGHLAND | Highland Christian School students logged another successful year competing in National History Day judging at Marian University in Indianapolis. Last month's contest marked the culmination of projects completed by more than 4,000 students statewide.

Jeffrey Kroll won second place for his entry, "The Aukiki: Indiana’s Lost River" in the individual documentary film category. He also won the Thomas Krasean Prize for Indiana History, an award for an outstanding project on Indiana history, which included a financial gift.

Kroll is representing the state in Washington D.C. at the national contest this week.

Seventh-graders Julia Oostema and Cate Peerbolte won third-place medals for their entry, "World War II: A Women’s Chance for Glory" in the group documentary film category. This also qualified them as an alternate entry in the national contest.

Finally, Highland Christian School sponsor Rick Vander Woude was presented with the Patricia A. Behring NHD Teacher of the Year award for the Junior Division. He was automatically entered in the National Teacher of the Year contest and is also attending the national contest this week in the nation's capital.
