Davidson Kicks Off U.S. History Contest

Davidson & Associates announces the ìTake a Ride Back in Timeî contest to recognize middle and high school students who have demonstrated their understanding of significant events in U.S. history.

To enter, student teams should submit a multimedia project based on the perspective of an ordinary person during a particular time or event in history. Projects must be constructed using the tools within Vital Links, Davidsonís comprehensive American history curriculum that blends software, videodiscs, audiocassettes and printed materials.
The grand prize is a trip to the National Educational Computing Conference (NECC) in Seattle, June 30-July 2, 1997, for a student from the winning team and the sponsoring teacher. One grand prize will be awarded to each grade division: 5-8 and 9-12. At NECC, the student representatives will present their projects to attendees from around the country.

Other winning team members will receive Davidson software for home or school use. In addition, their school will get a site license for any program on a select list. The contest deadline is May 31. Davidson and Associates, Torrance, CA, (800) 545-7677, www.davd.com.
