On Saturday, February 4 Carlisle High School hosted the local history day competition with a record breaking number of 152 projects between both middle schools and the high school.

Students in grades 6-12 have the opportunity to submit historically based research projects. This year’s theme was “Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas.”
