Worthington created the iHistory WW2 video contest because he realized how important it is for students not just to memorize facts about World War II, but to understand it.  The contest is a nationwide competition that connects teens with American World War II veterans in an effort to help teens gain a greater understanding and appreciation for history while expanding their skills in journalism and video technologies.
