3 Upper Peninsula Students Returning to D.C. for National History Competition

From large projects to the tiniest, this fine art fair had it all.

Including a few students who will show their work in the nation’s capital.

For the second year in a row, three students from DeTour High School are going to the National History Day finals in Washington D.C. and it’s the same three students who went last year.

Tailey McCloskey, Alyssa Miller and Wyatt Galarowic displayed their project called “Mental Health Reform in America” at the fine arts fair held at the high school Wednesday night.

It took them three months to complete the project.

A project with subject matter that hits very close to home.

“Two suicides that have been in our area and watching the devastation of the communities of the families, seeing how our peers reacted and adults we knew. We knew that we could make a difference,” said Detour High School Junior Tailey McCloskey.

The students have a Go-Fund Me page for those who would like to help them pay for their trip to the nationals in June.
