A History Hullabaloo is an open house that gives students an opportunity to get expert advice from Minnesota History Day staff and local mentors. The history day staff are from the Historical Society in Minnesota and organize about 20 Hullabaloo events around the state every year. Students from the area were all invited to the event which focused on learning more about writing a thesis statement, organizing a paper and getting advice on research terms.
