PVS NHD Regional Winners

On March 2, 2021, the National History Day (NHD) West Tennessee Regional Winners were announced, and once again Pleasant View School students from 6th-12th grade excelled in every category. Pleasant View School took home first place in 7 of 16 different categories across the senior and junior divisions, and placed in 12 categories overall with 20 winning projects out of a total of 48 1st-3rd place winners. 1st and 2nd place winners in each category advance to the NHD State Level, where competitors will compete with other regional winners across the state; 3rd place winners are substitutes if any 1st place or 2nd place winner cannot attend the next level. 15 PVS projects advanced to the State level. Students have been preparing for this competition since the beginning of the year, working very hard to succeed and uphold the PVS tradition of excellence in NHD at the regional, state, and national levels. The PVS Social Studies Department has been very dedicated to making sure students excel in their projects and perform well. Teachers Mr. Andre Clarke, Mr. Calvin Shaw, and Ms. Nisreen Malley have been preparing and assisting students with their projects throughout the year.

Unlike previous years, students had to adjust their projects for fully virtual presentations, instead of the usual in-person presentations at the University of Memphis. Competitors had to fully display their project’s power of telling history by simply visual means. Performances, which are usually done in front of a live audience, were pre-recorded. Students Zainab Malik and Ibrahim Malik were able to overcome the adversity of not performing live on a stage and won first place in the Senior Group Performance category. Students who have advanced to the state level will continue working to improve and adjust their projects based on the feedback of the regional judges. Congratulations to all the winners and students who put in their hard work and dedication to their projects. Inshallah you will perform excellently at the state level!
