The Gold Standard
Fort Knox, KY | April 24, 2014
Fort Knox sophomore Elizabeth Aloisi competed in a National History Day district competition in Louisville March 15 and was picked to advance to the state level. The state competition will be at the University of Louisville Saturday.
Two students from each category are selected to move on from the state-level competition to nationals in June. The theme for this year's competition was "Rights and Responsibilities in History." Elizabeth chose to research and develop a web site concerning the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.
Elizabeth became interested in National History Day when she was in eighth grade at Seoul American Middle School. Her history teacher required all eighth-graders to complete a yearlong project to be submitted to the district competition in Seoul. This year, Elizabeth decided to participate in the competition independently. Most students submit projects through their schools and have a teacher mentor them throughout the year but Elizabeth wanted to try it on her own.
Elizabeth is the daughter of Spc. Michael and Jennifer Aloisi.
