COOPERSTOWN – Students from throughout New York State presented history projects in Cooperstown Monday morning as part of New York History Day.

The exhibits are on display at The Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown. This year’s theme is Conflict and Compromise.

State Sen. James Seward walked through the projects that were on display to be judged Monday morning. He secured $125,000 in the state budget to ensure New York History Day would continue this year in Cooperstown.

Seward says the event is not only academically important, but it’s also the beginning of Otsego County’s busiest time of the year.

"This event draws students, faculty and family members to our area to kind of kick off the tourist season," Seward said. "I know the local hotels, bed-and-breakfasts, restaurants are all full this weekend, and so there's a great economic benefit to our local area."

The winners from the regional competition will be announced tonight, and they will advance to the national round at the University of Maryland in June.
