EUP Regional History Day Results - 2022

EUP Regional Michigan History Day 2022 Winners


The Eastern Upper Peninsula’s Regional History Day competition was held virtually the week of March 7th.    The regional event adhered to the standards outlined in the National History Day program, and winners will have the opportunity to compete at the state-level competition which will also be held virtually.  The results of that contest will be announced during a virtual awards ceremony.  The event will be recorded and posted on the Michigan History Day website. 

In our region, students in grades 7-12 participated.  We had a total of 3 entries presented by 8 students. Participants conducted research related to an annual theme and presented their findings in one of five categories: exhibits, documentaries, performances, papers, and websites.  It is our hope that the students enhanced their historical inquiry, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills through participation in this event.

Results are as follows:  

Exhibit Category

Junior Division (6th-8th Grade)

1st place (Individual) – Cole Kiczenski – DeTour Area Schools

Senior Division (9th-12th)

1st place (Group) – Ty Norris, Hunter Kuusinen, Sophia DePaul, Calvin Mccloskey – DeTour Area Schools

2nd place (Group) – Alyssa Yiirs, Cameran McGowan, Maddison Fox – Pickford Public Schools

All winners were awarded a certificate and a ribbon.
