Sam and Philip won first place in the White House Historical Association, White House At Bat Challenge. Their submission will be developed into a video that will be shown at Nationals Park! See the press release here.

Inspired by a love of history, conservation, and baseball, they  focussed their submission on President Theodore Roosevelt’s work to create national parks as safe sites for historic artifacts and diverse, precious wildlife. Their video will debut at the game at Nationals Park Stadium on Friday, May 27.
