BAY CITY, Mich.-A total of 153 students received top honors at the State

"This year's theme-Exploration, Encounter, Exchange in History-challenged
the students to really think outside the box," said Andrea Lorion, Michigan
History Day state coordinator. "As a result, there are many outstanding and
diverse entries in all five categories-performances, exhibits, papers,
websites and documentaries."

Michigan History Day (National History Day in Michigan) offers a fascinating
opportunity to move beyond routine learning. Based on the annual theme,
students choose to explore and research a local, national or international
historical topic. They then present their work through the disciplines of
writing, art, literature, music, drama and/or visual communications.

Lead sponsors of Michigan History Day 2016 include Meijer, the W.K. Kellogg
Foundation, Amway and Bay City Public Schools.
