National History Day is a year-long academic program that encourages students to explore local, state, national, and world history through project-based learning and research. Students conduct extensive research on a topic of their choosing. They present the analysis and conclusions about their topic in a project.
National History Day competitions are opportunities for these students to present their work to judges and get feedback. At each level of the competition – school, county, state, nation – students are given an opportunity to improve their projects and do more research.
