What is History Day?
National History Day is a highly regarded academic program for elementary and secondary school students. History Day in Arkansas is part of the National History Day network.
Each year more than half a million students, encouraged by thousands of teachers nationwide, participate in History Day. Students choose a historical topic related to a theme and conduct extensive research through libraries, archives, museums, oral history interviews, and historic sites. After analyzing and interpreting their sources and drawing conclusions about their topics’ significance in history, students develop creative presentations to share what they have learned with others. Students compete in the spring at local and state levels. Top entries from each state compete in June at the Kenneth E. Behring National Contest held at the University of Maryland.
