MOUNT VERNON — Two juniors from Mount Vernon High School are among the top finishers in the recently-held 2017 Ohio History Day State Contest. They completed in-depth research into an historical topic, then defended it in front of the judges.
Aidan Clarkson won a silver medal for his research project called “American Involvement in the Fight Against Apartheid,” and as a third-place finisher is an alternate to the National History competition.
