Local students go to history fair nationals

Chantz Richens and Samantha Tatton, students at Mont Harmon Junior High, were invited to the National History Fair with their exhibits. Tatton won second place in the individual exhibit category at the Utah State History Fair for her project on cameras, documenting Louis Daguerre, the inventor of the first camera, "Daguerreotype", and his invention of four other cameras. Richens won first place at the fair in the category of individual performance for his project on the Polio vaccine. Focusing on Jonas Salk, the developer of the vaccine, Richens followed how Salk used vaccines, as well as how vaccines are used today. These two students won the honors to take their projects to the University of Maryland on June 13 to 17 and compete in the National History Fair.
