On March 8, 2013, Indiana University of Pennsylvania hosted the regional competition of this year’s National History Day with the theme “Turning Points in History.”

Supported by over 50 volunteers from IUP and the community, the History Department faculty judged entries from 177 middle and high school students who had prepared exhibits, papers, documentaries, performances, and websites on the topic. In the course of their research, students carry out individual or group research projects though use of libraries, archives and museums, and historical societies. 45 entries were sent on to the State Competition in Mechanicsburg, Pa., to be held on May 3.
