After taking first-place ribbons at the National History Day Orange County Competition on March 11, five fifth-graders from Olinda Elementary School advanced to the state's National History Day Competition on May 6.

    Brea students at the state History Day Competition are, from left, Zoe Panis, Jiya Patel, Erika Yang, Jocelyn Islas and Sean Cronin. Their teacher, Jill Berrner, is standing behind first-place winners, Jocelyn and Sean.


      One nation's largest state History day competitions, California has more than 1,200 participants each spring.

        Sean Cronin and Jocelyn Islas took first place for individual projects. Sean's was "Claus von Stauffenberg's Stand Against the Nazi Regime," and Jocelyn's was "Harriet Tubman: Taking a Stand for Freedom."

          Quite an honor for Brea and Orange County!
