Allison Ringold’s school project promoting electric cars is garnering attraction in her home state of Michigan. The 10-year-old created the website “What’s Was Old Is New Again” to detail the history of the electric car.

The website, her entry into the National History Day 2012, covers the journey of the electrically-powered car from its inception up to 2012 models such as the Leaf and the Volt. Ringold’s interest in electric vehicles is nothing new to her family. Her uncle and aunt, Mark and Amy Swains, have been members of the daily electric car drivers and the Plug-in America groups for years. The Swains’ passion for these vehicles is so deep that Mark was on the Chevy Volt Customer Advisory Board.

The website has not yet been evaluated by the National History Day 2012 judges.
