LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - National history day projects from area middle school students are set up throughout the La Crosse Public Library.
There are exhibits, papers, documentaries and websites talking about the topics the students have been researching all school year.
Some include women's rights, the boycott of the Moscow Olympics, famous African American athletes, and the Berlin Wall.
The librarians say some of the students went above and beyond in putting together their research. "Some of these students have actually contacted famous people that were part of the historical project they're researching and sent emails or done phone interviews," said Librarian Cindy Mischnick.
There are $1,000 in prizes up for grabs.
Part of the selection is through a people's choice vote which goes for another week.
