National History Day is a year-long educational program that 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 research papers based on research related to the annual theme. These projects are then evaluated at local, state, and national competitions.
Congratulations to all of this year's participants!
