Do you wonder if young people even know who Joe Hill is?
Here’s an answer.
Chloe Stewart, Mina Projansky Ono, and Haley Segura chose Joe Hill as their topic for the National History Day contest this year. The national theme for 2015 is Leadership & Legacy.
These Salt Lake City teens interviewed members of the Joe Hill Organizing Committee, played songs of Joe Hill, and provided extensive research notes along with their presentation.
The three won the Salt Lake regional competition in March, and they placed 2nd at the Utah state competition in April.
Now, they are raising funds to go to Washington, DC, for the national contest June 14 – 18, 2015. Help them out if you want to see them win National History with Joe Hill this year.
