  • More Information on National History Day

    NHD engages students in grades 6-12 in the process of discovery and interpretation of historical topics. Students produce dramatic performances, imaginative exhibits, multimedia documentaries, websites, and papers based on research related to an annual theme.  Individually or in teams of two to five, students research a historical topic, develop a thesis, and create a project to present their argument.  Students enter their projects in local and regional competitions and compete for the opportunity to advance to higher levels of competition.

    The NHD program teaches students important literacy skills and engages them in the use and understanding of museum and library resources. The program inspires students to study local, regional, or state history and challenges them to expand their thinking and apply that knowledge to the national or even worldwide scene. The program also teaches students to become technologically literate through the use of computer and Internet research methods and the use of technologically advanced applications in their presentations.
