Congratulations to Miss Vinita Cheepurupalli

Congratulations to Miss Vinita Cheepurupalli for winning first place on her individual website entitled Penicillin: The Unexpected Encounter of a Miracle Drug at this year's National History Day Competition in South Carolina. 

Each fall, over half a million students nationwide begin the year-long National History Day program, competing in a series of history contests in their local schools, regions and affiliates. The top students in each category are selected for participation in the national contest.  Participating students choose their own topics of study and research from original sources based on the theme: Exploration, Encounter and Exchange in History. National History Day students research historic documents and artifacts, conduct oral histories, search the Internet for information on their topics and travel to historic sites. They present their work in a variety of ways, by creating exhibits, documentaries, performances, websites or historical research paper.

Vinita won first place at both the state and regional NHD competition. The national annual Kenneth E. Behring National History Day contest will be held in University of Maryland from June 12-16.

Congratulations to Susan Adams

Susan Adams, library media specialist at Spring Valley, has been selected to attend one of four Library of Congress 2016 Summer Teacher Institutes. In this five-day program for K-12 educators, Library of Congress education specialists facilitate sessions modeling strategies for using primary sources to engage students, build critical thinking skills, and construct knowledge. Participants consider, discuss, and develop applications to their students, their classrooms, and school libraries. During the week, participants draw from among the millions of digitized primary sources in the Library’s collections to design and refine specific primary source activities to implement in classroom settings. Participants also have opportunities to meet experts within the Library and visit the Maps; Manuscripts; Prints & Photographs and other Reading Rooms to gather information and resources to use in developing their activities. Ms. Adams is looking forward to representing Richland Two and Spring Valley High School with pride.
