The 2016 Student Winners

One hundred and fifty students from all over the DC metropolitan area submitted projects for the 2016 White House at Bat: A Presidential History Challenge. The winning students were rewarded with a $1,000 scholarship at an awards reception held at the White House Historical Association in May. In addition to this event, videographers from the Washington Nationals produced the videos of each winning project. These were shared with fans at the game at Nationals Park on May 27, 2016, and are now available to watch below. Meet the 2016 student winners!
