Channeling Churchill

Fifteen-year-old Jay Mehta took first place this summer in the National History Day competition for his depiction of Winston Churchill. Steve Kraske asks the Pembroke Hill student why the English Prime Minister inspired him, and what it took to channel his persona. 

The Truman Library hosts the regional History Day contest. Teachers can get involved by sending an e-mail to Mark Adams at mark.adams@nara.gov.
