On April 15, 2017, five Maui Prep students traveled to Oahu to compete in the National History Day Hawai’i State Competition. This year’s theme was “Taking A Stand in History,” and the school’s projects included two performances and an essay – all about women who challenged inequality and injustice.

Anthony; and Christina Guerrini (’19) and Vittoria Barone (’18) performed their original work about Annie Besant’s activism for women’s rights, birth control, religious freedom, and rights of children.

The performances won awards for their quality research using primary sources (Karaneva/Howeth) and research and interpretation of intellectual and cultural history (Guerrini/Barone). The theme for next year is “Tragedy and Triumph”.
