For the last six years the Bay County Historical Society has hosted the ten county Region 5 Michigan History Day 2010 Competition. 100 students participated this year. 24 projects, representing 37 students, won the right to advance to the state competition later this year.

Last year two Region 5 students that went to State advanced to the National competition in Maryland. One of those students was ranked 14th in the nation at that level.

The 2011 theme was "Debate and Diplomacy in History: Successes, Failures, Consequences". Students presented papers, displays, web sites, performances and documentaries on topics as varied as The Toledo War between Michigan and Ohio, China under Mao, Censorship in Music, and the Cuban Missile Crisis.

History Day competitions are much like a science fair, but for history projects", said Ron Bloomfield, Director of Operations and Chief Historian.

Students must do their own research on a topic they choose. They present the results through art, literature, visual communications and writing. Winners at each level refine their presentation based on judges comments then move to the next level.

Saturday's event was held at the Delta College Planetarium. Four shows were presented free to the public during the History Day activities.
