LISTEN: Overland Park Teen's Award-Winning Winston Churchill Impersonation

Aug 14, 2015

Fifteen-year-old Jay Mehta is inspired by Winston Churchill.

So much in fact, that he spent over 300 hours studying his life and character to put on a performance that won first place in his category in the annual National History Day contest, which attracts more than 600,000 student historians nationwide. 

His ten-minute performance starts before 1940 when Hitler began his campaign in Western Europe, Prime Minister Chamberlain resigned, and Churchill became Prime Minister.
