All of the National History Day entries from Estherville Lincoln Central middle and high school made it to state. This week, the competitors received their time slots for the state competition, scheduled for April 29.

Vanessa Vedder will compete at 10 a.m. as one of 16 competitors for a prize in Senior Individual Documentary for her entry, "Buxton: The Triumph and Tragedy of a black Utopia."

Cora Brandt and Taylor Myers will be among four competitors for Senior Group Performance, "Treaty of Traverse des Sioux: Historical Triumph and Historical Tragedy." Similar to last year's creation that went to national competition, Brandt and Myers have written, produced, and will perform an original play. They take the stage at 10:20 a.m.

Kai Li Dong has created a website, "Chinese Immigration: From Triumph to Tragedies," and will put her bytes up against 19 other competitors. Her time is 10:30 a.m.

Quimby Ross's Junior Individual Performance also puts her in a field of 20 competitors with "Iowa Hog Lift: From Multiple Tragedies to International Triumphs" at 11 a.m.

In a clean sweep at district competition last month, the five ELC competitors received nods to compete at state. Last year, Myers and Brandt's original play about worker conditions in an Iowa button factory went to national competition in Washington, DC, where they placed eighth in their category.
