History Day Information
History Day is a program that promotes interest in history among middle school and high school students. Through History Day, students develop skills in historical research and presentation by designing an exhibit, writing a paper, producing a documentary, or creating a performance based on an annual theme. Students present these projects in competitions at the district, state and national levels. For more information about History Day, check out the "What is National History Day?" page on the National History Day website.
