National History Day is a voluntary project-based competition open to elementary, middle and high school students.  The event is an exciting way for students to explore local, state, national and world history.  Students conduct extensive research on a historical topic related to an annual theme and then compete at the site level.  The winners from the site level go on to compete at the country and some continue on to the state level.  For more details, please click on the link below.
