Three local students win state history day competition

Three local students were recognized as statewide winners in the annual California History Day competition

Brett Buckingham, who produced an individual documentary, and Warren Crandall, who wrote a historical paper, will travel to the National History Day competition in Maryland in June.

Buckingham attends Atascadero Junior High and Crandall is a Family Partnership Charter School student.

Chelsey Killion of Atascadero Junior High also won top honors in the Web site competition, but there is no national contest for Web sites this year.

Buckingham was also awarded a California Historical Society Multimedia Award.

San Luis Obispo County Office of Education will be recognizing the students at their next board meeting, June 7.
