Coupeville’s Middle School and High School students presented video documentaries for the National History Day program to members of the PBY Memorial Foundation at the foundation’s April luncheon meeting at the CPO Club in Oak Harbor.
The research and documentation for these projects by the students is under the direction of Wilbur Purdue, History Day advisor of the national program at the Coupeville schools.
Purdue said that seven students have already competed at the regional level in March and are preparing for the state contest Saturday, May 7, at Bellevue College.
Each year, the PBY Memorial Foundation awards a scholarship to the program and it is used toward transportation of those students who will compete in the National History Day finals.
