A parent observes junior Kaitlyn Arst’s exhibition on Toby “Winema” Riddle. Arst will be competing in LA County History Day for the third consecutive year.

Sophomore Lauryn Uhlenberg is excited to compete against other groups at the Los Angeles County National History Day competition.

Uhlenberg’s group includes sophomores Astrid Cabrera and Kirsten Cintigo. Their project was about famous feminist and novelist Betty Friedan, who played a leading role in the second-wave feminist movement.

“It’s relevant in our current society,” Uhlenberg said. “My group members and I feel strongly about equality.”

The Los Angeles History Day competition will be held on March 25 at Azusa Pacific University.

Sophomores Karina Mara, Alyssa Cancio, Farah Faiza, Alexis Gutierrez and Marina Sifuentes will also be competing with their documentary on World War I veteran and poet Siegfried Sassoon.

“We wanted to focus on his writing because this was something unique to us,” Mara said.

The group enjoyed producing the documentary and bonded with one another.

Other participants include former competitor junior Kaitlyn Arst,  whose project is an exhibition on Toby “Winema” Riddle, a Native American interpreter from the Modoc tribe.

“I wanted to find a woman leader that was actually originally from America,” Arst said.
