The Senator John Heinz History Center in the Strip District is hosting its annual National History Day competition March 30-31. More than 400 students from 30 area schools will participate.

More than 400 students from 30 area schools will participate this weekend in the annual National History Day Competition at the Senator John Heinz History Center in the Strip District, officials said.

The event has been held since 1989.

Students compete individually or as part of a small group in one of five history-focused categories, including documentaries, exhibits, historical papers, performances and websites, according to a news release.

This year’s theme is “Triumph and Tragedy in History.”

The top three in each age group quality for the state competition May 10-11 at Carlisle High School with a chance to advance to the national contest in June at the University of Maryland.

There are two divisions.

The junior division is grades 6-8 and will compete Saturday with the senior division of grades 9-12 competing on Sunday.

The public can view the projects at 1 p.m. both days.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
