On May 2, Maddy Gamst, Ruby Mohelsky, Tana Korhonen and Josie Benzie competed at the state History Day Competition at the University of MN-Twin Cities. The theme this year was Leadership and Legacy and over 1,300 kids competed at state! Josie and Maddy completed a documentary on Dr. Clarence Lillehai and Ruby and Tana completed a documentary on the Mayo Clinic. While they didn't advance to finals, their projects are absolutely amazing and something to be very proud of!! It was definitely a learning process and they are excited to compete next year. If you see the girls, congratulations are definitely in order as they put in many hours for this project.
