Thank you to everyone who participated in the #Sacrifice4Freedom Twitter contest sponsored by HISTORY®! National History Day (NHD) is grateful to HISTORY® for supporting this event and we hope that everyone enjoyed engaging in these historical discussions on Twitter. Please make sure to tweet your thanks to @HISTORY for making this contest possible.
Over the last two weeks you have excelled at demonstrating your historical knowledge and understanding of the sacrifices we make to be free, and we want to congratulate everyone who took the time to engage in this new NHD learning opportunity. This week while our judges are working diligently to select the five winners, please tweet to us what you learned from your participation in the contest.
The final contest prompt went out last week asking you to tweet the message that you would leave with the Americans who died on D-Day. Here are the best responses that we received:
