Tiverton Middle School students win state awards at the Rhode Island History Day Contest! On April 1st, twelve Tiverton Middle School sixth-graders participated in the 2023 Rhode Island History Day Contest. Students presented their exhibits, documentaries, and research papers to teams of judges and competed against students from other schools in grades 6-8 statewide. Projects were based on this year's theme, Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas, and were scored based on their historical quality and clarity of presentation. The Junior Group Documentary first-place winners were Ben Brigham, Will Correia, and Samuel Messenger for their entry, John Adams and the Boston Massacre Trial. The Junior Group Exhibit first-place winners were Abigail Gilfillen and Elena Silvia for their entry, Abigail Adams: Crossing a New Frontier into Independence and Women's Rights. The first-place winners advance to the National History Day Contest in Maryland this June. Zachary Snizek was also recognized with the Secretary of State Award for his project, Nathanael Greene: New Frontiers in Military Tactics. This award is given annually to an outstanding entry in any category or division that relies on primary sources from the Rhode Island State Archives to develop a project tied to Rhode Island history.
