    Collin Michael will represent Oklahoma in the National History Day competition in Washington, D.C. in June.

    Michael-- a student at Childer's Middle School -- recently won first place at the History Day competition in Oklahoma City. His project focuses on the Tulsa Race Massacre and Black Wall Street.

    Michael's family told FOX23 a recent fire at their home is prompting them to ask for help raising money to send him to the national competition.

    The family says it is a great way to bring awareness to an important part of Oklahoma history so that history does not repeat itself.

    As of this update, the family has raised $2,000 of their $5,000 goal. To donate CLICK HERE.
