NDMS Student Wins History Prize

12 June 2020

NDMS Student Wins History Prize 

            Dylan Ruppert, an 8th grader at North Dorchester Middle School, was recently awarded a special prize at the state level of the Maryland History Day competition.

            His winning paper, “Austrian Resistance to Nazi Occupation:  How the Political Barriers of Their Time Were Broken”, won the special prize in the Peace, Non-Violence and Justice category.  Dylan had won a first-place award in the regional Maryland History Day competition earlier in the year to qualify for the state contest.

            Not just a budding historian, Dylan also qualified for the state level of the National Geographic GeoBee that was to be held this spring but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.  His social studies teacher at North Dorchester Middle School is Mark Lowrie.
