National History Day is a non-profit educational organization located in College Park, Maryland. At the competition, students can create projects in 5 categories: Documentary, Exhibit, Paper, Performance & Website. National History Day annual competitions are held on school, district, state and national levels. This year's theme was Leadership & Legacy. Many schools across the nation presented their projects in College Park, MD throughout the week of June 14-18, 2015.
Isabella, Haleigh and Makena of Impact Academy & IA Weekly worked together on their National History Day project (see pictures below). They showcased their Live Performance at the national competition this week. Their live performance, Pink Cadillacs, Diamond Bumble Bees & the Golden Rule: The Leadership and Legacy of Mary Kay Ash, highlighted key advantages and struggles that Mary Kay Ash faced as she started her cosmetics company. Makena, Isabella, and Haleigh each played Mary Kay Ash but they each portrayed her different times in her life. They performed this week in Washington D.C. after representing Impact Academy in Henry County, and also the state of Georgia.
