National History Day - Breaking Barriers in History

National History Day makes history come alive for students by engaging them in the discovery of the historical, cultural and social experiences of the past. Through hands-on experiences and presentations, today's kids are better able to inform the present and shape the future. NHD inspires students  through exciting competitions and transforms teaching through project-based curriculum and instruction.
