TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- Washington Irving Intermediate School held its annual Memoir Night on March 30, a chance for third through fifth-grade Challenge program students to present history/memoir projects to visitors. 

The students have been spending months doing research on specific figures in history and historical periods. Many dressed in costume to explain their work. Fifth-grade students will be submitting their projects, which focus on New York history, to the New York State Archives Student Research Award program on July 1. 

Those projects range from an examination of the Beatles’ impact on America after they landed at JFK Airport, the story of Murder Inc., a notorious Brooklyn-based gang, and a look at the growth of the Women’s Rights Movement in New York. Last year, Washington Irving students placed second and third in the statewide competition.
