Sorry, this video is no longer available

Three Marshall School students will soon leave Duluth and head to the nation’s capital to present their work.

For nearly a year Andrew Kneepkens, Erik Shirley and Farley Hammond have been working on their history day projects which takes a deeper dive into leadership and foreign policy.

Recently the students entered their projects and won in the National History Day regional and state competitions.

Now they will go head to head in the nationals in Washington D.C.

“We would have been happy with an honorable mention,” said Shirley. “That was our goal. They just kept reading off names and we just placed first so we didn’t expect that one at all.”

The boys will leave for Washington D.C. mid-June.

They are in need of funding for room and board.
