The NHD Club is designed to facilitate and promote intellectual inquiry as students pursue their interest in a history topic of their choosing. Students compete in a state competition that provides the possibility of moving on to a national competition in Washington DC. Students can work alone or in small groups, and all are welcome.
National History Day (NHD) motivates students to discover history by:
- Cultivating interest: students research a topic of their choice;
- Developing research skills: students act as historians discovering how to uncover primary sources, build historical context and form historical interpretations;
- Becoming experts on their research topic: presenting their research to teachers, students, and historians; and
- Achieving success: The shy student gains confidence when speaking about a topic he/she has researched, the apathetic student gains passion by choosing a topic of personal interest, and the high achieving student increases his/her ability to articulate learning through presentation.
