National History Day
Advisor: Mrs. Heninger firstname.lastname@example.org
Time Commitment: Students can work in teams or individually on a project. Time commitment depends on the effort and commitment of the individual or team, but once a week for several months prior to the regional competition is the minimal amount of time to do a respectable project. Regional competition occurs in early March, and many teams continue on to state competition in Des Moines, which is usually the last Monday of April.
Brainstorming of topics can begin in the fall. A topic should be chosen during October to give adequate time for research
Where Club Meets: Room 501
Purpose of Club: National History Day (NHD) provides an exciting way for students to study and learn about historical issues, ideas, people, and events. As students research historical subjects, create entries, and compete in a series of contests, they acquire useful historical knowledge and perspective and develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills that will help them analyze information and make effective decisions in their future professional and personal lives.
Membership Information: Please see Mrs. Heninger or Ms. Norris to discuss joining a team or working as an individual. Students usually begin working on their project in the fall.
