Nine members of the History Fair Club have qualified for the Illinois History Day competition May 3 in Springfield. In the Exhibits category, juniors Samarth Goel, Alex Dong and Andrew Yoon, and sophomores Govind Prabhakar and Matthew Li, were selected for their presentation on the Pullman Strike, a nationwide railroad strike in 1894 that had a major impact on American labor law. Four others qualified for state in the Websites category. Freshman Rishika Chikoti was selected for her website, “The Fight for Better: The Chicago Freedom Movement,” based on the mid-1960s open housing effort in which Martin Luther King Jr. was a key figure. Freshmen Krishna Patel and Bella Kim were chosen for “The Jungle: Public Outcry Sparks the Beginnings of a Meat Revolution.” Their website addressed the impact of Upton Sinclair’s book, “The Jungle,” which chronicled deplorable conditions in the meat-packing industry at the turn of the 20th Century. Junior Samuel Shen’s website, “The Manhattan Project: How It Changed the World,” was selected for its look at the scientific project that led to the creation of the atomic bomb. The state qualifiers were chosen during the Chicago Metro History Fair held April 12 at the Chicago History Museum.
