Students in Calvert County, Md., recently presented projects in the county's history fair and took on subjects such as child labor and human rights. As part of her research, Calvert High School senior Hanna Shatuck e-mailed the embassies of Belgium and the Congo. It led to an award-winning presentation on the history of Leopold II's Belgian rule in the Congo in Central Africa in the late 1800s. Plum Point Middle School student Gracie Knudson, also an award winner, wrote and performed as a child who worked in a factory during the Industrial Revolution. Nearly 50 students will compete in the Maryland History Day contest in May.
