Henry County Students Compete in National Competition

 

Washington D.C. – Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) congratulated 10th District students Emily Garrison and Kennedi Anderson from Impact Academy in McDonough, Georgia for placing first in the state’s National History Day competition and representing the 10th District on the national level at the annual Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest. Each year, students research a topic based upon an annual theme and present their findings in a documentary, exhibit, paper, performance, or website. The top entries from each state compete in a competition held every June. Congressman Hice released the following statement after meeting with the students:

 

“These exemplary local students have distinguished themselves, their schools, and our community through their hard work and commitment to learning,” said Congressman Hice. “I am extremely proud of everything they’ve accomplished so far, and I am honored to have these young people in the 10th District of Georgia.”
