National History Day is not just a day, but every day! The National History Day program is a year-long education program that culminates in a national contest every June.
For more than twenty-five years the National History Day program has promoted systemic educational reform related to the teaching and learning of history in America's schools. The combination of creativity and scholarship built into the NHD program anticipated current educational reforms, making National History Day a leading model of performance-based learning.
NHD is a year-long education 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, interactive web sites, and research papers based on research related to an annual theme. These projects are then evaluated at local, state, and national competitions.
