Description

This short documentary is about Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" (1906) and the food safety and labor reforms the "muckraking" novel affected. I created this video in 2011 and it won first place for Individual Documentary at the Florida History Fair in Tallahassee. I then went on to compete on the national level in Washington, D.C. (National History Day). This was the third historical documentary I created to win at the school and county levels and move on to the state History Fair. I hope you enjoy it! 1st Place Ernest Britt Rumble in the Jungle: Upton Sinclair and the Fight for Reform Spruce Creek High School (Volusia); Teacher: Nicholas Prince http://www.fldoe.org/successstories/2011/05-13.asp
