"OROVILLE — Students from three Butte County schools participated in the National History Day competition Saturday.

The projects were presented to the judges and the public at Nelson Avenue Middle School in Oroville.

Rindy DeVoll, the coordinator for National History Day in Butte County, said the event has been held annually for the last three years in Butte County.

“It exists across California in about 22 different counties out of the 58. In fact, two other counties are holding their county competitions today,” DeVoll said.

This year about 50 to 80 students participated in the competition. In the last three years, this is the biggest turnout, DeVoll said. Participants are separated into different divisions, based on grade. Elementary is for students in fourth and fifth grade, junior is for students from sixth to eighth grade and senior is for students from ninth to 12th grade."
