Two seventh-graders at Haile Middle School will represent Manatee County this weekend.
Students Sami Copeland and Cypress Potter took first place in the Florida History Fair competition earlier this month in Tallahasse. Now, they will travel to compete in the National History Day Contest June 9 through June 13, at the University of Maryland.
The girls won the junior group website division for their project titled, “The Great Compromise of 1787 — Turning Political Mayhem into Peace.”
