The Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board (OHRAB) is pleased to congratulate students John Victor Pan and Jeremy Gimbel as winners of OHRAB’s 2015 National History Day Award.
The OHRAB History Day Award was developed to encourage high school student research projects that demonstrate exceptional use of Ohio primary sources. Ohio primary sources are those either created in Ohio or held in an Ohio repository and represent a first-‐hand account contemporaneous with the events or people researched.
More information on these winning projects and the program can be found on our History Day Awards page.
