Eight students from the Los Alamos High School National History Day Club participated in the statewide National History Day (NHD) Competition April 27 in Albuquerque.

The historical theme this year was “Conflict and Compromise.” Students can compete by designing a website or a documentary, writing a paper, doing a performance, or creating an exhibit.

Miriam Wallstrom won first place in the senior paper competition for her paper “The Compromise that Saved Humanity: The Cuban Missile Crisis.” Wallstrom is now eligible to compete in the National Competition in June at the University of Maryland.

Two other students, Brooklyn Scott and Christine Mathew, won a special Native American History Award for their documentary about Queen Lili’uokalani of Hawaii called “Losing Paradise: The Last Queen of Hawaii.”
