The Humboldt County Office of Education's Rising Stars Foundation supported 72 Humboldt County History Day champions to compete at California State History Day, held May 6-7, in Rocklin. With a 2017 theme of “Taking a Stand in History”, over 1,200 top history students from throughout the state participate in the rigorous competition that featured multiple rounds.
Ultimately, a total of 27 local students – the largest number ever - earned recognition (last year’s number was 14), including State Champions Gavin Brooks and Conner Johnson, 8th graders from Zane Middle School, for their project titled, “Sun & STAX: Record Labels That Defied Segregation and Created Integrated Classics”. Brooks and Johnson will travel to the University of Maryland to compete at National History Day June 11-15.
