National History Day Contest

Here’s an enrichment opportunity for history buffs!  This year’s theme is “Revolution, Reaction, Reform – in History”… that certainly seems timely.  Students can pick a local, state, national, or international topic relating to that theme.  Students in grades 6-12 are eligible to participate, although some affiliates also allow 4th and 5th graders.

National History Day makes history come alive for America’s youth by engaging them in the discovery of the historic, cultural and social experiences of the past. Through hands-on experiences and presentations, today’s youth are better able to inform the present and shape the future. NHD inspires children through exciting competitions and transforms teaching through project-based curriculum and instruction.
